Week of Feb. 4 – 8

Hi Grade Two Families,

Congratulations! You have successfully survived your first week of the First Communion Program! Thank you very much for all the dedication and commitment you have shown this past week for the First Communion program! The children (and you) did a wonderful job participating actively during the Mass and sharing their knowledge of the theme. They clearly are a wise bunch in both knowing who their godparents are and knowing that they probably don’t remember their Baptism because they were babies! I can’t wait for the upcoming weeks and for them to continue on this very special journey!

Please don’t forget to print a family photo and put it on page 2 of your child’s Gold Book.


Have a great week! 🙂
