All students making 1st Communion, no matter where they attend school, will register for specific sacramental preparation in early fall; this will include five evening classes with their families plus some special events. Those registered will receive a schedule and more details at a family orientation, date to be determined.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & SACRAMENTAL PREP IN 2022-2023
If you have a child who will receive 1st Holy Communion at St. Thomas this spring on May 13 with our parish community, then you need to fill out a registration form UNLESS you are enrolled in our parish CGS Level II on Friday or Sunday mornings. This includes students at St. Thomas school.
The first event for parents and first communicants is on Sunday October 16 from 6-7:30 PM in the Parish Hall; at this time you will receive materials and a full schedule. Please register using the link on the weekly email or website; call or email our Faith Formation Director, Alex Wallo, email@example.com with questions.
Level 2 CGS is for 6-9 year olds (1st-3rd grade)
At the start of Level II, the child begins preparation for First Holy Communion by delving deeper into Scripture and the liturgy of the Catholic church. During the second year of CGS Level II, families receive a catechetical text to help them with faith formation as a domestic church in the home.
For those children not attending St. Thomas school, we will offer a Level II atrium on Friday mornings at 8:30-10:30 AM and also two on Sunday mornings: 9:15-11:15 and 11:15-1:15.
