2017 Communion Course
St. Timothy’s is excited to offer a Communion Course to our 2nd and 3rd and 4th graders in January, 2017. The course consists of four evening Bible meditations and culminates in the sacrament of reconciliation, renewal of their Baptismal Covenant and Family Eucharist during a weekend retreat. The curriculum is taken from the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd material for children age 6-12 years. Additionally, the children will make the Communion Bread for the Family Service, decorate their own White Garment and make a cross to wear during the special family service.
The course will be held at St. Timothy’s on the following dates:
Thursday, January 5, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (pizza dinner)
Thursday, January 12, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (pizza dinner)
Thursday, January 19, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (pizza dinner)
Thursday, January 26, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. (pizza dinner)
Friday, January 27, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. (dinner and dessert)
Saturday, January 28, 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (lunch and celebration festivities)
Saturday, January 28, 3:00 p.m. Family service
There are only two requirements:
1. Due to the nature of the curriculum and the necessity for cohesion in the group ALL participants must commit to attending every meeting.
2. One parent must attend the planning and information meeting on Tuesday, January3, at 7:30 p.m. in Room 5 at St. Timothy’s Church (please let me know if you need childcare).
