Our religious education includes the celebration of 2 sacraments. The Sacrament of Reconciliation and the First Holy Communion is celebrated in grade 2.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Students are taught of God’s unconditional love and forgiveness through the study of the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Grade 2. This is achieved through biblical stories, dramatization and group projects. Mrs. Flaherty also works in partnership with the parents by giving a faith formation meeting, in which they are given the highlights of the Sacrament, time to cultivate assurance/support that they are the primary influence of their child’s religious education and the encouragement to also receive the Sacrament as role models for their child.
Sacrament of Eucharist
Through the study of the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist, students learn the deeper meaning of Eucharist. They are taught that the bread and wine received in Holy Communion are the Body and Blood of Christ. By the manner in which we receive and in the way we live, we show reverence for Christ fully present in the Eucharist. The curriculum includes biblical stories and are compared to the celebration of Mass.
