“At the Last Supper, Our Savior instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of his Body and Blood, by which the Sacrifice of his Cross is perpetuated until he comes again; and till then he entrusts the memorial of his Death and Resurrection to his beloved spouse, the Church” SC#47. In and through the celebration of the Divine Mysteries in Word and Sacrament we are constantly being built up into the Body of Christ. As St. Augustine reminds us that through our faithful reception of the Eucharist we become what we receive.
Children preparing for their first Reconciliation and Eucharist must be baptized Catholic. Sacramental preparation is a two-year process, beginning in the First Grade. The celebrations of the sacraments occur in Second Grade. The same preparation process is provided to children in the Faith Development program and the parochial school.
For children at St. Thomas More School, contact your child's class teacher; for all others, contact Jim Hynes at 942-6237.
