First Penance Updates

St. Lawrence Church

November 11, 2021

Dear Families,


This is a reminder that our First Penance Children's Workshop will be held twice on Saturday, November 20th. FAMILIES, DON'T FORGET TO SEND YOUR CHILD WITH HIS/HER PURPLE GOD'S GIFT: RECONCILIATION WORKBOOK ON SATURDAY. WE WILL BE COMPLETING CHAPTERS 5 & 6 ON THIS DATE AS WELL AS PRACTICING THE STEPS OF CONFESSION.


Parents do not need to stay. If you are staying in the parking lot, park behind Deacon Hall instead of in front of the church. We are trying to keep parking spaces open in front of the church in case of any funeral masses. Thanks so much for your help!

The next time we meet will be on the next four Saturdays, 2-2:30pm in Church, for your first confessions! So exciting! They are: Nov. 27th, Dec. 4th, Dec. 11th, and Dec. 18th. Check our signup: https://signup.com/go/isOzRge to see when your child is scheduled to attend one of these. We will send all of this information out to you next week, as well.


Learning prayers: a reminder to all our little disciples to continue memorizing their prayers! Make sure your child is practicing the following for First Penance (and First Communion): Sign of the Cross, Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and an Act of Contrition (can be any-short or long). Remember, if they can't remember all of the Act of Contrition, they can always take a "cheat sheet" into the confessional with them!



Never hesitate to ask us any questions.


We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!


Blessings,

Melissa and Debbie
