Step #1: If you didn't attend Mass over the weekend, watch Mass below.
Have your student write in their Mass journal. They can write about something they learned, a question they have, the main point of the homily, etc. Please remember to date the entry. They can write in their journal after watching the Mass or while they are watching the Mass. Questions to ask your student to help them: What is one thing you learned today? Did Father Tilley tell a personal story during the homily? If so, what was it about? Was there a word you learned today?
Step #2: Print the handouts below.
This handout is for parents and answers many questions about your child's First Holy Communion Mass. It is very important that you read it!
If your student in in Year 1, this is for your information only. We want you to have an idea of how things will go next year.
This is a MUST READ for Year 2 parents.
You should also grab a couple sheets of paper and some crayons or colored pencils to draw with.
Step #3: Watch the Sunday Sanctuary Lesson below.
If you have not already read pages 253-261 in your Illustrated Bible, do so now. Father Tilley will talk about the three stories you read and ask us to think about the gifts that Jesus offers to each of the people in the stories.
When it is time for the small group activity, you and your child should each draw a picture of yourselves caring for people in one of the three ways Jesus cared for the people in today's stories.
