FIRST SACRAMENTS UPDATE FROM FR. KEN (April 9, 2020)
The re-scheduling of this year’s First Penances and First Communion Masses are a concern that remains outstanding at this point for both our P.R.E.P. and Parish School communities. As soon as we are able to return to public gatherings at Church, I will quickly address the rescheduling of these occasions with all involved. Let’s pray that that becomes possible very soon!
We will complete our PREP year through distance learning due to the current restrictions on public gatherings. All families are required to attend Sunday Mass which can be live-streamed or viewed through the archive of our parish website St. Isidore Parish, for the Sundays, March 22, March 29, April 5 and April 12 and respond to the assignment from your Catechist/Teacher by Wednesdays, March 25, April 1, April 8 and April 15. Our PREP year will conclude by Divine Mercy Sunday, April 19, 2020.
If you are encountering connection challenges with your Catechist/Teacher, please visit Gospel Weeklies Online Assessment. Complete the assessment for the appropriate version Promise for Grades K-1, Good News for Grades 2-3, Venture for Grades 4-6 and the appropriate week. You may enter firstname.lastname@example.org as the teacher’s email address.
We pray that everyone remains healthy and safe. We pray for all health care workers. We pray for other essential workers: grocery store workers, trash/recycling workers, restaurant delivery workers. Thank you for all you are doing for us. We pray that those who are sick regain their health. We pray for the happy repose of those who have died and comfort for their families.
