FIRST EUCHARIST 2018

The EUCHARIST Preparation Sacramental Program caters for Yrs. 4+ parish children, not attending either of the parish schools, who have previously made their First Reconciliation. Parents seeking FIRST EUCHARIST preparation for their children are requested to complete the enrolment form, with cash payment, and send to the Parish Office. Please provide both a phone number and email address.

The Parent Formation Evening for the Eucharist Program is on Thursday 19 April, OHR Church, at 7.30pm. That night, the date and time for a family Home Mass will be allocated which children and parents attend, usually in May, Term 2.

All students are expected to attend one Home Mass, with their parents. Families will be asked to host these Masses and approximately 6-8 families attend each Mass. This is an excellent learning opportunity as a Home Mass is very simple in a non-threatening and friendly environment. It is always meaningful and moving. After Mass a shared supper, to which each family contributes, is enjoyed by all.

PREPARATION PROGRAM : 5x 45 minute classes will be held in the Our Holy Redeemer Meeting Room, to the side of the church, after school on Thursdays - 4.15pm:

14 June, 21 June, 28 June, 19 July, & 26 July.

Please note, students are also required to attend a Eucharist  Reflection Day, at the Salesian, Don Bosco Retreat Centre, Lysterfield, 20 July. The children will travel by bus from OHR school, with the OHR school children, on the day. They need to bring their lunch, a named drink bottle and snacks. They should wear school sports uniform and bring a hat. The cost of this activity is included in the Eucharist Program Fee paid at enrolment. Kindly complete the consent form and email to the Parish Office by Thursday, 28 June, 2018.

First Eucharist is held over the weekends of 28-29 July and 4-5 August this year, in Term 3. Small groups at each Mass – usually we can fit in one of your preferences.

The criteria require students to attend all 5x classes and the Reflection Day.
