**Parents, teach your child their prayers so they are prepared to make their sacrament of Penance & Reconciliation this year (2nd-8th)


Sacraments of Penance/Reconciliation &/or Holy Eucharist: children planning to receive a sacrament for the first time MUST be attending Mass weekly.   To prove attendance from now to May; they need to get a bulletin, have Father sign it, and then turn the signed bulletin in to their RE teacher with their name and Fathers signature on it.   Teachers will record the dates of signed bulletins and turn them in to me.  Children also need to be attending RE classes, passing the tests, and know their prayers (Sign of the Cross, Glory Be, Hail Mary, Our Father,  7 Sacraments, TenCommandments, Act of Contrition, and Format for Penance/Reconciliation).  

The focus this year is to prepare all children 2nd to 8th grade for the sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation.   Next year, 3rd to 8th can review Penance and prepare for first Holy Communion (Holy Eucharist), if your child has attended RE classes for at least 2 years, is in 6th grade older, and all prepared for both sacraments, please call Madonna @ 928-365-5223
