Attendance at worship is an integral part of your child’s life at St. Elizabeth's School. Once a week each child will participate in the Liturgy. His/her class will have the opportunity to help with the planning of the Mass on a rotating basis. Parents are cordially invited to attend. We also want to emphasize the importance of family participation in the Sunday liturgy on a weekly basis.
Preparation and reception of the sacraments happen within the parish community but the school assists the parents in the preparation of children for the reception of the sacraments.
During the seasons of Advent and Lent, the children will be provided with the opportunity to participate in a communal penance service with private confession. Other times of confession are given in the weekly parish bulletin.
First Eucharist and the Sacrament of Forgiveness
Parents are primarily responsible for preparing their child for the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation. The teachers in the second grade will assist in the preparation of these sacraments, in cooperation with the Parish Religious Education Coordinator.
A formal religion lesson is taught by the classroom teacher four days each week.
