Sacramental Preparation Update (February 15, 2019)

Dear Families,

Thank you so much for your flexibility this past week with us cancelling and rescheduling our class for this month! As a reminder, our next class will be next Wednesday, February 20th at 7 pm. Please arrive by 6:45 pm to sign in and get
this month’s materials.

Homework for the week of February 16 – February 19:

Catch up week!

Family Faith Habit for the Month:

Whether everyone writes it in their own little notebook or shares it around the table at lunch, practice looking for and sharing the “one thing” that really spoke to you at mass on Sunday every week – whether it be something you learned from the readings, the homily, or the music. What did you learn about God’s character? What encouragement or suggestion did God give you? What did you hear that will help you become a better version of yourself this week? How can you put it into practice this week?

Our Next Class: Don’t forget! Our next class is next week, February 20th at 7 pm. Please
arrive by 6:45 pm to sign in and get your materials for the month. This is the session in
which we start our preparations for First Communion!


Although most families brought the baptismal certificate to show to us at our first class, we do require
that each family submit a copy of their child’s baptismal certificate for us to keep on file for the program. You are welcome to either bring a photocopy to our next class, or you are welcome to scan/take a picture of your child’s certificate and e-mail it to me. Whichever is easiest for you!
Please e-mail or bring in a copy even if your child was baptized at St. Maurice Parish.

We would love to have you join us!

As always, you are more than welcome to join us at any of our masses this weekend. It’s a great opportunity to refocus and recharge for the week ahead. Our weekend mass schedule is as follows:

  • Saturday – 5pm. (Traditional music with cantor)
  • Sunday – 9am (Contemporary worship music, children’s liturgy offered, coffee social follows mass)
  • Sunday – 11am (Contemporary worship music)
  • Sunday – 7:30pm (Contemporary worship music)

May God bless the week ahead for you and your families!
God bless,

Ellen Hong
First Communion Coordinator
