Important Notes

  • There are 3 components: Learning Sessions, Rituals/Presentations, Activities. Activities, while fun, is an important part of hand-on learning, and learning as a family.
  • Rituals/Presentations are specific to children who will be receiving Confirmation and Eucharist. It takes place during the 9:30 am mass.
  • Meeting is split into 3 groups after the initial prayers:
    • Confirmation / Eucharist: Jackie Smith
    • Reconciliation: Catherina Murphy
    • Parents: Ken Murphy (because parents need know what we are teaching the children at adult’s level, so they can help the children understand what is taught and reinforce their learning
  • If you miss any session, recaps will NOT be sent out. If you miss more than 2 sessions (especially the later ones), make-up sessions may be required prior to receiving the sacraments.
  • Mass attendance is mandatory. Each child will have received a mass attendance card. Please get a catechist leader / minister to initial next to the dates.
