Communion Enrichment

Our Communion Enrichment is designed for 2nd through 5th graders (translated  “early readers”). This program helps us fulfill the promise made at baptism.  We do do all in our power to support the newly baptized in their life in Christ and assist children and their families in deepening their understanding of God’s gift of the Holy Eucharist.  For some of the children, this serves as a first communion class. For others, it will provide an opportunity to explore together the pieces and meaning of our liturgy.

Each class includes an instructed eucharist, along with projects and activities to enhance the lessons.  This permits us to go into greater depth about Holy Communion than our Church School schedule allows. We discuss Bible lessons, compose a Book of Prayers and a Book of Thanks, create banners and posters, learn songs, and bake the bread for the parish to eat during the Holy Eucharist.
