Preparation for Communion

Children in 2nd grade (or older) are invited to participate in Preparation for Communion classes beginning September 11, 2022. This series was developed out of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program as a way of inviting children into a deeper understanding of Holy Communion. Children are invited to participate in this class whether or not they have already participated in communion.

As you are making your decision about participation in the Preparation for Communion course, please consider that there is a commitment to be present for the classes and the retreat in order for the process to be meaningful to your child. The full schedule is posted below. If you have any questions or would like to discuss Preparation for Communion, please email Deanna Lawson or call 713.354.2244. Registration will be required.
