Sacramental Review Spreadsheet

The 2nd Year FHC Sacramental Review Spreadsheet is for you and your child to use to see what has been completed.

This spreadsheet will be updated on Sunday evenings for you to check each Monday. We try our best, but if you ever notice a discrepancy, please email Lourdes Highfill:

Prayer Review

Prayer Review will take place quarterly with your Group Leaders. A list of all the prayers your child needs to recite each quarter is below.

Mass Missions

In the fall and spring for 12 consecutive weeks each, the kids have a mission to learn more about the church and the Mass!

Fall 2023 Mass Mission Dates

Sept 30 and Oct 1- Dec 16 and 17

Spring 2024 Mass Mission Dates

Jan 6 and 7- March 23 and 24

Attend Mass each week and complete the online mission for each week below. Please be sure to do this WITH your child so they can learn to pay attention in Mass and discover beautiful treasures in our church.

Mass Mission Steps:

  1. Parents review the Mass Mission for the week prior to attending Mass to become familiar with the questions.
  2. Take your child to Mass.
  3. After Mass find your child’s saint passport in the file box on the counter in the hall.
  4. Take ONE saint sticker from the box per FHC child (we DO NOT have extras for siblings but you can bring your own for them!).
  5. Read the saint description to your child and have them place their sticker on their passport above that saint’s description.
  6. Return the saint passport to the file box.
  7. Complete the online Mass Mission with your child. The Mass Missions will close at 9:00pm each Sunday. No Mass Missions will be accepted if they are received before 6:00pm on Saturdays.
