Family Catechesis PLUS First Communion Prep
This option is for children preparing for First Communion (which includes preparing for and celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation as well). These students participate in the Family Catechesis at-home lessons, PLUS sacrament-specific lessons each month (when we gather for in-person class). In addition, there will be two parent/child retreats. The first will be for Reconciliation – and will take place during class (Nov 29/30). This group will have an opportunity to celebrate their first Reconciliation on December 6. The second is a First Communion retreat – which will take place for a couple hours on Saturday, March 18 (you will have a choice of either morning or afternoon attendance). This preparation usually happens in Grade 2 – with a one year Religious Education prerequisite. Children in Gr 3 – 6 may also register, as long as they fulfill the one-year prerequisite. Please contact the Religious Ed Office if you have questions, or are not sure your child is eligible to register for this class.
It is necessary that you turn in a copy of your child’s Baptism certificate with his/her registration form – EVEN if baptized at St. Anastasia (unless you have already done so).
If you need a copy of the Baptismal certificate, please see here for details on how to obtain one.
