Congratulations! You and your child recently celebrated the Sacrament of First Reconciliation. Now we will begin preparing for the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist. The book My Own Mass Book has been chosen to serve as your guide on this faith-filled journey. This material is supplemental to that which will be covered in both our parish and school based religious education components. It provides a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to reflect on your connection with our parish as well as deepen your relationship with God and one another.
Each week you will receive an email sharing a particular theme and listing corresponding pages to be completed in My Own Mass Book. By following the suggested timeline, your family will finish the book just in time to celebrate the sacrament of First Eucharist on April 21/22, 2018 at the 4:30 P.M. Vigil and Sunday at 7:00 A.M., 9:00 A.M., 11:00 A.M. and 5:30 P.M. Masses.
Our Eucharistic journey will begin with the first email installment in this series. The parish will help and support you in many ways but it is you, the parent, who has the greatest impact on your child's faith and faith development. We pray that this stage of preparation will be a special, sacred time for you and your family.
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever." John 6:51
