First Communion Prep 2020

First Communion Information

Due to the continued closing of schools and travel restrictions, we have decided to postpone the First Communion preparation and Masses. We are doing this to help keep everyone safe, to provide time for the children and families to prepare, and to allow for as many family members to be able to be present as possible at the First Communion Masses.

NEW MASS DATES AND TIMES
Sunday, June 7th - First Communion Mass at Sacred Heart - 10am Mass
Sunday, June 14th - First Communion Mass at St. Mary's - 11:30am Mass

We will not be able to have the First Communion Masses on these dates as we have not yet returned to public Masses and do not know yet what we will be able to do in June. We want to schedule the Masses on dates when friends and family will be able to join us. The dates will be announced here when they are decided.

NEW PREPARATION DATES AND TIMES
Please choose ONE of the following preparation times.
Option 1) Two Meetings - Tuesday, May 19th and Tuesday, May 26th - 5:00-6:30pm - St. Mary's
Option 2) One Meeting - Saturday, May 30th - 9:00am-12:00pm - Sacred Heart

When the Mass dates are set, we will also plan for the preparation classes for the children and their parents. 

FIRST CONFESSION
For those who have not yet completed their First Confession. We will have a preparation class on Monday, May 16th from 5:00-6:30pm in St. Mary's Church.
We will also plan a date for first Confession for those who've not received that Sacrament yet.

PLEASE NOTE - If the current health crisis continues through the above dates, then we will reevaluate and reschedule again.
