FIRST COMMUNION - THINGS TO LEARN, PART II

posted Nov 7, 2018, 9:20 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Nov 7, 2018, 9:20 PM ]
As part of your child’s preparation for First Communion, your child will need to learn several concepts and prayers throughout the year. 
 
For the month of November, we are assigning the second set of concepts and prayers that your child will need to learn.  They include the Seven Sacraments as well as the Act of Contrition and the Ten Commandments, as soon your child will be learning about the sacrament of Reconciliation and preparing for their First Reconciliation.  This week, we will be sending home a handout with your child containing these new items that they need to learn. 
Sometime in December, we will be evaluating to see whether or not your child has learned these items.  We are asking for your help by going over and praying the prayers together with your child, as well as reviewing the concepts with them.  The best way for them to learn these prayers and concepts is to pray them every day and to talk about them as a family!
 
In addition, please remember to continue reviewing and praying the Basic Prayers (from Part I) with your child at home.  There are a few students who are still working on learning the prayers.  Please encourage and help your child to learn these prayers entirely if they have not yet done so.  We will be following up on the Basic Prayers later on in the year.

Please let us know if you have any questions. 
 
Thank you, and God bless you.
