First Eucharist April 2 Session Reminder


Hello First Eucharist Families,

Our next First Eucharist Prep session is this Sunday, April 2 @ 9:45 – 10:45 am in the Education Center classrooms.

We have completed the Together in Jesus Lessons 1-6 in the Blue First Eucharist Folder!

This Sunday, our Lesson will review and have an activity focusing on “The Last Supper” and how it relates to their receiving the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time. We will also review the Easter Story as we prepare for the Celebration of Easter on April 9.

Between now and First Eucharist Retreat for Parent(s) and children on Sunday April 23 @ 9:45 – 10:45 am, please help us prepare the children and reinforce the class lessons and prayers:
