Grade School Schedule Reminders & Updates  

In January we hope to have 3 classes: January 17, 24, and 31. 

In February we will have 4 classes, 7, 14, 21, and 28, however, the confessions scheduled at 8:30 am will not occur due to the Corona virus and the observance of safety.  

We will however have a Penance Service for both Grade and High School Students on Sunday, February 28, at 5:00 p.m.  It is important, if you feel safe, to have our children and teens stay on task with the experience of Confession and Reconciliation.  

We also encourage the children, if you feel safe, to come to the Ash Wednesday Mass (February 17) to be marked with the Ashes, signifying their beginning of the Lenten Journey. Mass and Service times can be found on our Web Page as well as Facebook.  

Each Friday of Lent we will have the Stations of the Cross.  We do encourage you to bring your children to the Stations, since this is a Catholic Devotion which is important for them to engage in and experience especially during the Lenten Season  

In March, we again have 4 classes scheduled-March 7, 14, 21 & 28.  

We call your attention to the 2nd Grade Parent-Child Retreat on Sunday, March 14, from 11:30 – 12:45 p.m. at St. Matthew Church in Tyrone.  At this meeting we will present the importance of the Eucharist in the life of a Catholic Christian and plan out the preparation for the reception of First Holy Communion.  

In April, we have 3 Classes scheduled on April 11, 18, and 25.   

We call your attention to the Celebration of First Holy Communion with our Second-Grade class, on Saturday Evening April 17, at the 4:00 p.m. Mass. 

On May 2, we will have our Final Session of Religious Education with the May Crowning involving our Grade and High School Students, at the 9:00 a.m. Mass.  Grade School students will still have Class following the 9:00 a.m. Mass from 10:00 – 11:15 p.m.
