Your child is preparing for First Holy Communion. The Sacrament of First Communion will be celebrated on Saturday, May 7 for last names A – L and Saturday, May 14 for last names M – Z. If you have called the office to switch days, that has been done.
Communion interviews will be scheduled in April. More information on that to follow.
There will be a rehearsal Friday, May 6 for May 7 Communion students and Friday, May 13 for May 14 Communion students. The time is still TBA.
First Communion students should go to confession prior to receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion, so we are asking you to bring your child to the parish Lenten confessions on Wednesday, April 6. If possible, please try to bring your child during these times:
4:30pm – 5:00pm……Last names A – F 5:00pm – 5:30pm……Last names G – M 5:30pm – 6:00pm……Last names N – Z
Parents are encouraged to go to confession as well. If you are unable to come at your assigned time, please come when you can. Priests will also be hearing confessions from 7-8pm.
Peace and Many Blessings, Miss Emma
First Holy Communion at St. Gabriel's is celebrated in May. Typically, students making their First Communion are in Third grade. Diocesan guidelines state that all students must prepare for and celebrate their first sacraments in their home parish. Therefore all classroom, homeschooled and Catholic school students must be sure to register through our Faith Formation office.
