Year 3 Sacramental Programme
As a Diocesan school Christ the King participates in the ‘Sacramental Programme’ each year. During the year the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist will be celebrated. Once the children have completed this journey they become full members of the Catholic Church. During the course of the year a series of meetings, celebrations and masses will take place for you and your child. A key element of the programme is that the home, school and parish work together to enable your child to grow in the understanding of faith and how to live it. Each part of the programme is important as it forms part of the child’s experience of God and stays with them for the rest of their lives. We try to make this a positive and worthwhile experience and want parents to play a full and active role in their child’s preparation. You will be informed regularly about times and dates of meetings, masses and celebrations. The Wednesday Word is sent home from school every week and is an excellent resource to share Jesus’ stories through the Gospels.
We ask you four support throughout the childrens' Sacramental journey. Our first will be the mass, celebrating Harvest, will be held on Sunday 15th October 11.30am.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
During this sacrament you confess your sins to God. God knows what sins you have committed and will commit but with this sacrament, you are aware of those sins. When we go to Confession or Reconciliation we are receiving graces from God to make it easier not to sin again. We should receive this sacrament as often as possible.
First Holy Communion
The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is when Jesus is with us in the bread and wine. Through prayers, by asking the Holy Spirit to come upon the gifts, (the bread and wine), the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus. Only a priest can do this. We believe that God is in the Eucharistic bread and wine so they should be adored and honored. Christ is present in both the bread and wine, so we don’t have to have both. Usually we receive the bread. We should receive this sacrament each week.
