K-8 Parent Resources

2020-21 Parent Resources Grades K-8

And we have reached the end! Below are the Session 6 lessons for First Eucharist. We hope the lessons have gone well. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. We'll be sending details for the FirstEucharist masses soon. In the meantime, please be thinking about whether or not your family would prefer socially distanced seating. We'll be asking for that information closer to each date. At this point, we can use the entire church for seating. Each child would have her/his own pew, then the rest of the church will be available for anyone extra who would like to attend the mass. Again, as we get closer to each mass, we, along with Fr. Joe and Fr, Peter, will evaluate where the state and Archdiocese guidelines are and make final decisions.
Also, if your child would like to do a reading or volunteer to bring up the gifts at the offertory, please email Kathy Mancini and let us know how your child would like to participate. We are very much hoping and praying that guidelines will remain the same so that we can have a church full of love and joy to celebrate our sweet children on their remarkable day!
If you have picked up a banner to complete at home, please return it as soon as possible. The doors into the Parish Center are unlocked and there is a basket in which you can leave it.
We're so excited to join with the children and their families as they complete this chapter of their faith journey! So much to look forward to!
