jesus and kids     Religion Topics

The class has begun preparation for First Communion. We are learning about the two parts of the Mass: Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist,  We will also be visiting the church for a tour by one of our priests to learn about objects found on the altar, the tabernacle, the stained glass windows and the Stations of the Cross.            
During the month of March we will learn about St. Joseph, the patron of our school, and St. Patrick.  Both saints celebrate their feast days in March.
We will discuss the significance of our Lenten season and the events leading up to Easter Sunday.

Our class attends the Tuesday liturgies with grades 3-8 every week. They will be learning the different prayers and responses said at Mass as well as their significance. Father Mike is a frequent visitor to our classroom and is really involved in sacrament preparation.
