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.
