"The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life." CCC 1324
Second grade is a big year for our students! Not only do they receive their first Reconciliation (Confession), but they also receive the Eucharist for the first time. That's right! For the first time in their lives, God places Himself into their hands.
This year, we will be using a brand new program called Blessed from Dynamic Catholic. This program was designed with the help of the Disney Animators, so you know it will be engaging!
As with First Reconciliation, we are asking families to go over session 1 together. To access the videos for session 1, please click the image below.
