A special year for the children as we focus on the immediate preparation
for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
The focus of the program will be the Holy Trinity-God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
God's forgiveness through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and joining at the table
for the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist. As part of the preparation for the sacraments, the children will get an up close look at the vessels, vestments and books used at Mass. Prayer will be a part of each class.
The last part of each class will be a relaxing time where the children will learn songs and enjoy a sing-a-long.
