Last year, your child was asked to learn and memorize the four “Basic Prayers” that every Catholic should know how to pray.  These prayers include the Sign of the Cross, the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be.  Your child should already be familiar with all of them.
As your child is now in the second year of faith formation for First Communion, it is imperative that they know their Basic Prayers. 
When you registered your child, we included a handout with the Basic Prayers in the Welcome Packet that you received via email.  Please make sure that your child is reviewing their Basic Prayers at home that they must learn.  
We informed you during the Welcome Orientation that we will be evaluating our First Communion students on their Basic Prayers sometime in October.  According to the class outline for First Communion, the evaluation is scheduled for the week of October 20th, 21st, and 24th.  The evaluation will take place during regular class online.  More details will be emailed to you next week.

We are asking for your assistance by going over and praying these prayers together with your child.  The best way for them to learn these prayers is to pray them every day, and what could be better than to pray together as a family daily!
Thank you, and God bless you.
