SOLEMN COMMUNION CLASS

Children are invited after a period of discernment as to maturity and readiness to explore and deepen their understanding of a sacrament which many of our children have received from an early age. This is a time for the children to enjoy and gain an appreciation of the beauty and mystery of the gift of the Holy Eucharist. A special retreat day is held for the renewal of Baptism vows and the sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) in a holistic age appropriate way. The meditations and retreats take place outside of the regular Sunday atrium sessions.
