To: All Parents Whose Children Are Preparing For First Eucharist May/June 2018

More and more parishes are having sessions for parents and children who are preparing for Initiation Sacraments. All Sacraments require preparation. Therefore, here at St. Augustine Parish we will be having once monthly sessions beginning Sunday, September 17, 2017. Sessions will begin at 9:00 am and run until 11:30 am. This will follow through until April, 2018 . There will be also be a few retreat afternoons on a Saturday, one in the fall before Advent, and a final one before 1st Eucharist celebrations. The First Holy Eucharist celebration of your child will take place in May or June 2018.  Having met on June 4th with the principals of our two schools along with our new Sacramental co-ordinator, Joanne Larose we outlined the important segments of this mandatory schedule for the coming year! We invite at least one parent along with your child to attend these sessions, who will also benefit from this program. For any child or parent who has not been baptized and would be interested in more information in receiving the sacraments please contact Father Scott at the Parish Office or Joanne Larose for more information. We would be happy to accommodate you! We appreciate your attendance to all sessions of “faith formation” and preparations for this special Sacrament for your child. It is most important that your family is well prepared for this special event in your child’s life.

Sincerely yours,  

Reverend Francis P Scott, Pastor St. Augustine
