Dear Parents,



The children in the class will have the opportunity to meet Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 during their Faith Formation class time 6:30-7:45 p.m.


Father David Ostrowski will welcome and administer the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession).


Please help your child to be prepared to receive this Sacrament of Peace.  May their hearts be filled with love and sorrow for their sins.  We pray with you that this will be a peace-filled and joy-filled experience for each child.  Jesus loves them and wants to give them grace to become better as they continue to prepare for their First Holy Communion, May 14, 2006.
