This year is one of preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion.
We prepare together to come before the mercy of the Lord in First Reconciliation, and to receive God truly present in the Holy Eucharist at the Mass.
Online registration for the 2022-2023 school year is now closed, as this year's classes have already begun.
Our program is for grade 2 students of St. Gregory School as well as the children of any family who attends St. Maurice Parish. If your child is not a student of St. Gregory's School, please make sure to contact the parish office at email@example.com to register as a parishoner at St. Maurice before starting the program. This program is specifically for grade 2 students. If you have any children older than grade 2 who need to receive the sacraments, or if you are interested in receiving them as an adult, please fill out the separate “Sacrament Interest Form” as we will be running separate programs for older students and for adults.
1 hour monthly classes with required "Home Connection" activities (short readings and videos to watch together) to complete with your child in-between sessions. Please set aside approximately 30-40 minutes of your time each week for the required "Home Connection" activities with your child. The Home Connection component is in addition to the monthly classes.
We will have monthly classes on Wednesday evenings. Classes will run October 2022-May 2023. We are planning for half of our classes to be in person and half of them to be virtual. In-person classes will take place at St Maurice parish. The sacraments themselves will be received in-person.
This year, the cost for registering one child is $50. Fees cover workbooks, instruction and other materials. Families will be able to apply for tuition assitance if needed during the registration process. A link for online payment will be provided to all registered familes by the end of September.
