Receiving Jesus for the First Time in the Eucharist

Dear friends in Christ,

Holy Family Parish would like to extend a very special congratulations to all those who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time over the past six weeks.  We encounter the mercy, love and healing of Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

It is with great pleasure and excitement at this time, to extend another invitation to all the parents and students in grade two here at our Parish. It is now time to begin the preparation for Receiving Jesus for the first time in the Eucharist. All parents and grade two students are asked to attend our parent meetings coming up in February 2018.

Learning Centers

This FREE program is offered to ALL children who are preparing to receive Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time.

What?

The Learning Centers are an opportunity for sacramental preparation within the family with the support of the Parish. Both parents and children learn more about the sacrament in an informal setting.  Families have the opportunity to do hands-on-tasks with their children and thus discover new ways to share their faith. We want this to be a “Whole Community” supporting each other in our faith.      

Who?        

Parent/Grandparent/guardian must accompany the child.

When?

Pick ONLY ONE of these two dates:

  • Friday, March 2nd, 2018 3:30p.m. to 5:30p.m.
  • Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 3:00p.m. to 5:00p.m.

(Drop in anytime during these time slots)

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with your son or daughter and make a craft or do an activity. It takes an hour to go through the program.

Where?

Holy Family Parish in the All Saints Hall.

Why?

“Learning Centers help parents to share faith with their children in a non-intimidating, educational, and enjoyable way. For the whole community, they offer a way to spend meaningful time with parish children while joining in the process of learning about and living the faith.”
