Sacramental Online Preparation
First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion 2020-2021
We want to share as much of our Catholic faith as possible with your child in a positive & loving environment. Our goal is to help your children to become active, faith-filled Catholics. Guidelines are set to ensure that we are doing everything we can do as a church, to help build up your child in the Catholic faith.
Unfortunately, due to the current health protocols our Catechism program will be provided online. There will be 12 sessions: 6 for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and 6 for the Sacrament of First Communion. Each session is approximately 1-hour pre-recorded lessons.
We will be using Google Classroom: All lessons will be posted and available on the Sunday’s listed below. A Google classroom code will be provided prior to the first lesson via parent emails.
Your child can work on the lessons anytime on the Sunday and complete the instructions given by the Catechists. The lesson will be a mix of videos, worksheets, and journal work.

We will use prayers as part of our lessons, but we will not be able to focus all our time on teaching the prayers to your children. We ask that you help us teach the basic prayers to your children:
The Our Father, The Hail Mary, The Glory Be, The Apostle’s Creed, The Act of Contrition
If your child needs extra help or assistance, please feel free to let us know so we can book an extra session with them.
