Dear First Communicants, Parents, and Friends,
We have really missed you! Really, we have. You guys make a lot of noise in the poor acoustics of the Parish Hall, sometimes you put your heads down on the desks because you are sooooo tired after a long day at school, sometimes you forget and break the no-running rule. We miss all that craziness and we miss you.
We are also so proud of you. We know that you've been put into an unexpected challenge, but you've done it! You are so close to the end of your obligations-- only 14 more days of online schooling before summer break finally happens. Thank you for doing your best to focus on meeting your school obligations so that you obey and please your family and teachers. Your obedience has helped your parents and teachers in ways you might not understand right now. Thank you.
So now it's time to think about First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. You worked so hard in the past two years, coming to class every week, learning about the members of the Blessed Trinity and the members of the Holy Family, forming a relationship with Jesus. We are so excited to finally celebrate your growth. Please take out your calendars and note these dates and times:
Friday, May 29, 5:15pm - ? is rehearsal in the main church.
Saturday, May 30, 8:30am - 12:15pm is retreat in the Parish Hall.
Friday, June 5, 5:15pm - ? is Sacrament of First Reconciliation in the main church.
Sunday, June 7, 3:00pm is Sacrament of First Holy Communion in the main church.
I will call each of your families this week and next. Please be ready to discuss your willingness to participate in these group activities.
I'm excited to see you again!
Mrs. Mary Acevedo, M.Ed.
Director of Religious Education
PS: Please read the entire HOME page on Holy Family's website. Weekday and Sunday Masses are resuming, but some Mass times have been eliminated. The Sacrament of Reconciliation time and place has also been modified. Please also understand that the Bishop's decision to excuse Mass attendance still continues, so no one is obligated to go to Mass right now.
Remember you can always watch Mass, give your donations, and check the bulletin on our LIVE page.
Holy Family is also active on Facebook (where our handle is @HolyFamilyCCPSLFL and our page is available to all) and myParish app (where our nickname is "Holy Family PSL").
