First Holy Communion

GOOD NEWS First COMMUNION has been rescheduled

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION MASS

We will be dividing the Communion into two groups. This will allow us to keep within the state guidelines for maximum occupancy of the church.
Communion A will be Saturday Oct 3 at 10:30  AM (Meyers)
Communion B will be Saturday Oct 24 at 10:30  AM (Sweeney)
 
We will likely also need to limit the number of guests and will base that on where we are with occupancy guidelines from the state come October.
 

First Holy Communion Retreat

All communion candidates and only ONE parent each are to attend a First Communion Retreat on Saturday Sept 26th. (exact time tbd) At this retreat we will collect the completed Blessed First Communion workbooks. The activities planned for this day are meant to review and reinforce what has been covered at home. I do recommend you do some review at home. This will be held in Holy Family Hall.
 

First Holy Communion Rehearsal

For Communion A - Tuesday, Sept 29 from 4 - 5:30 PM
For Communion B -  Wednesday Oct 21 from 4 - 5:30 PM
 
Please mark these dates on your calendars. Do notify our DRE ASAP if you have any questions or conflicts. We are always eager to accomodate your needs when and if we can.

All details are contingent on the COVID situation remaining under good control. Please God. Rehearsals will be held in the church.
