Life in the Eucharist Classes
Every year at St. Mark’s, we provide Communion Classes for children to learn about what it means to receive the Eucharist. We invite all children between the ages of 7 to 11 to attend the course, Life in the Eucharist, to grow in spiritual understanding through activity-based learning. The program will take place over two dates as follows:
- Saturday, March 30th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Saturday, April 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
A brief parent meeting will be held on Sunday, March 24th in the Lounge following the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service for a program overview and to pick-up the “Life in the Eucharist” workbook.
Program leaders this year are Ven. Tim Dobbin and Mrs. Pat McMillan. You are welcome to join the children at these sessions to support your child in the learning process. The workbook is for you and your child to work through together, for at-home reinforcement between sessions.
Our celebration of First Communion will be on Thursday, April 18th at 7:00 p.m. (Maundy Thursday) when we traditionally celebrate Jesus’ Last Supper. There will also be a pasta dinner and a special cake at 6:00 p.m. this same evening to celebrate this occasion.
At the beginning of the service, the children will be presented with a Communion Certificate. You are welcome to invite family and friends to be with you for the dinner and service.
