Dear Parents,

Your child/ren are continuing their Faith Journeys you started for them when you brought them to be baptized.  Acknowledging you, the parent, as the primary educators for your child/ren, we have put together opportunities for you to collaborate with us in preparing your child/ren for the Sacraments.  Instruction being a key component in preparing for the Sacraments, we have scheduled a makeup session for those who are unable to make the scheduled meetings.  Please plan now to make sure you the parent, a Godparent, or grandparent is able to attend the meeting. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation.  Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.

 

Mrs. Geatley
