First Eucharist Retreat
I said a special prayer for you and your families this Saturday morning, when we would have gathered for our First Eucharist Retreat. I wish we could have all been together at that time. However, it is important that we all remain healthy and safe.
Before the governor signed his "stay at home" order this weekend, we extended the invitation to come to the office to pick up retreat materials. In light of current circumstances, that will not be an option, so I am providing materials linked in this email. Even if you've picked up student materials, these may be helpful because I've included catechist materials as well.
Part 1. Introductory Rites
Part 2. Liturgy of the Word
Part 3. Liturgy of the Eucharist
Part 4. Concluding Rites
We will make banner materials available as the situation and public policy allows.
As of now we are still planning to move forward as scheduled with First Eucharist Rehearsals and Celebrations. We are monitoring the situation and will let you know where things stand as information becomes available.
Please know that your families are in my prayers. Even as our offices are closed, I am here to support you and your family in faith and sacramental formation. I can always be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone: 609.524.0509 (Office) 609.759-0678 (Remote).
