Eucharist (Communion) is the Sacrament of love and unity. It is the community’s grateful celebration of its identity with the words of our Lord to “do this in memory of me.” One of the main focuses of our First Eucharist curriculum is to familiarize our children with the main events of Jesus’ life, and to help them participate more meaningfully in the action of Mass, and to receive Christ’s body and blood in Communion in an informed and reverant manner. First Eucharist takes place in May of the Second Grade.
The Sacrament of Holy Eucharist is the heart of Christian life. Together with the help of our catechists we ask you to:
The second grade students attend a family retreat. Catechists, parents, and priests usually run this retreat. The day involves an age appropriate meditation, 3 workshops and a prayer service.
