Restored Order Sacrament Preparation

We're very excited that we'll be able to offer your child their sacrament preparation this fall, although in a different format than usual.  And as with everything during this unprecedented time, we ask for patience and flexibility if items/dates/etc... need to change.  We're all navigating these uncharted waters together and grace goes a long way toward making it a pleasant experience for all!

Parent Meeting Video

Please Watch This Video

This is the information we would usually present at our Parent Meeting and it seemed more realistic to video it than to try to type it all out for you!  It will explain each and every page in your packet, as well as outlining due dates and other important information.  While I'm happy to answer additional questions you may have, I've tried to answer most in the video, so please use it as a resource.

Companions on the Journey (September 2020)

Infographic

This month, we are focusing on Companions on the Journey.  On page 3 (green sheet) of your paperwork packet, you will find the explanation of how this attached Infographic will work.  The format will be the same every month so it will be familiar and predictable as we work towards our Restored Order mass.

Each Infographic will have three videos for you and your child to watch together, three Bible verses for your child to highlight in their Bible, your child's assignment, and some bonus material!  So, open the .pdf, click on the links, complete the assignments for the month, and turn them in to Mrs. Essex!  You can do them any time during the month, so pick the timeframe that works best for your family, but make sure to have them completed and turned in by October 1, 2020.

Rules for the Journey (October 2020)

Infographic

This month, we are focusing on Rules for the Journey which prepares our youth for the sacrament of Reconciliation.  The Infographic format is the same as last month.  The Infographic has three videos for you and your child to watch together, three Bible verses for your child to highlight in their Bible, your child's assignment (letter to the pastor and letter to the bishop), and some bonus material!  So, open the .pdf, click on the links, complete the assignments for the month, and turn them in to me!  You can do them any time during the month, so pick the timeframe that works best for your family, but make sure to have them completed and turned in by November 1, 2020.

Food for the Journey (November 2020)

Infographic

This month, we are focusing on Food for the Journey which prepares our youth for receiving the Eucharist.  The Infographic format is the same as the previous months.  The Infographic has three videos for you and your child to watch together, three Bible verses for your child to highlight in their Bible, your child's assignment (food in the scriptures picture timeline), and some bonus material!  So, open the .pdf, click on the links, complete the assignments for the month, and turn them in to me!  You can do them any time during the month, so pick the timeframe that works best for your family, but make sure to have them completed and turned in by December 1, 2020.

Also, lots of questions about attire for our Restored Order mass! Boys can wear a nice shirt, slacks, and tie. Girls may choose to wear a traditional white First Communion dress if they want, but it is not required.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!
