Advent Retreat for all Kindergarten through 5th grades students of the Parish - Dec 11, 9am - 11am
Grades 1 and 2
These two years are required by the Diocese of Atlanta as part of the preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. The nurturing of a child’s faith takes place within the family. As the parents are the primary faith educators, during these early sacramental years, it is our goal to enhance the child’s learning by introducing the children to traditional Catholic prayer and worship. These years help to build the foundation which will allow the children to embrace and grow in the love of God, as they journey toward receiving the sacraments in second grade. We encourage you to attend Mass with your child and allow them to see your participation in the sacraments as much as possible.
- First Communion and Reconciliation Retreat, March 12, 9am - 12pm
- First Holy Communion is scheduled for April 23rd - time to be determined
Grades 3, 4 and 5
During the later elementary grades, your child will be taught how to build upon their Catholic faith and you, as the parent/guardian, are a partner in this process. Your child will learn how we worship and how we can live our beliefs in everyday life. We will build upon prayer and emphasize the Ten Commandments, Sacraments, Liturgy and Morality. Each lesson is a spiral curriculum with both classroom and home components. This means that we encourage you to aid in this process by discussing the lessons as a family, praying as a family at home, and attending Mass and Faith Formation classes.
