Sacraments - Re-registering

posted Oct 19, 2020, 9:09 AM by Jonathan Hogg

Dear Parents;

Just a reminder to all that the deadline to re-register your child for
the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion is this
coming Friday, October 23rd.

So far we have received replies from a total of 18 out of a possible
61 that registered in the spring.
St. Bernard, a total of 6 with 3 yes, St. Thomas More a total of 11,
all said yes, St. Marguerite, 0 replies.
1 yes from Holy Family School.

This is a decision only you as parents can make on behalf of your
child. St. Bernard Parish is doing its utmost to provide the best we
can in these trying times. We have no idea when things may return to a
new normal, it could be a very long time. You and your child have
already done all the preparation this past spring and we just want to
offer you the opportunity to complete these sacraments.

'' When you receive Holy Communion, you are intimately united with
Jesus, He literally becomes part of you. Also you express your union
with all Catholics. In other words, it is food for the soul. "

Once the deadline has passed, we will contact the parents that have re
registered with further information and details concerning these
sacraments.

St. Bernard's weekly bulletin is now up on thewebsite, check it out to
see what is happening in your parish.

Hoping to hear from many of you this week and remember God loves each
and everyone of you!
