Family Faith Formation: 2nd Year First Holy Communion Requirements

Sacramental Review Spreadsheet

The 2nd Year FHC Sacramental Review Spreadsheet is for you and your child to use to see what has been completed (will be available Aug 2022).

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.

Prayer Review- Grade 2

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 Mass Mission Dates

Oct 1st and 2nd- Dec 17th and 18th

Spring Mass Mission Dates

Jan 14th and 15th- April 1st and 2nd

Attend Mass each week, complete the mission after Mass, put the mission back in the same envelope, and then have your child ‘mail their mission’ by placing it in the special mailbox in the narthex. Be sure your child’s name is on the mission and the envelope so we can properly record that it has been completed each week.

Where do I Pick Up My Mission?

Family Faith Formation Program Families:

Pick up your child’s mission each week when you come to class on the table in the hallway near the craft supply cart. Each mission envelope will be labeled with your child’s name.

Parent to Child Families:

Pick up your child’s mission in the Narthex before the Mass you attend. The missions will be in a box, on a table marked “Mass Mission.” Each mission envelope will be labeled with your child’s name.

The following forms are DUE NOV 7, 2022

A copy of the First Communicant’s Baptism Certificate AND Birth Certificate are also DUE NOV 7

**If your child was baptized at Holy Trinity, you DO NOT need to submit their baptismal form. We have that record already.**

Please turn these important forms into the faith formation office or your group leaders if you are part of the program. If you are doing the Parent to Child Program, HTH, or Catholic School, please use your family folder in the ministry closet. Please do not email us your paperwork!
