YES, it's theReal Thing!
We celebrate Christ’s passion, death and resurrection at every Mass. Jesus said “Do this in memory of me.” It is very important that your child understands that during the consecration of the bread and wine, through the words of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit a change of the whole substance occurs and the bread and wine become the ACTUAL Body and Blood or our Lord Jesus Christ. The bread and wine are no longer just bread and wine it is “Jesus”, the Eucharist, the center of our Faith!
Students preparing to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation & First Communion will follow the new "Home Based" platform on "padlet".
There is an additional section on "padlet" to help prepare students for these sacraments. Hopefully we will be able to have a few small gatherings before students receive their sacraments.
Both sacraments will be done in the spring of 2021
Once you register with the program you will receive the link to both the Family Program and the additional "sacramental pages"
And of course you can always count on us for support. It's a fun, easy platform for learning!
January 2021 lesson is now on Padlet
