FIRST COMMUNION THANK YOU: As we finish our celebration of 36 First Communions this May, we thank those who helped them register and prepare for the sacrament. Thanks to teachers Autumn Koch, Valerie Gerlich, and Janelle Rohr. Thanks to Myrna Beltran, Mary Bejblik, and Kathleen Thompson for their help with the program. Thanks to Community of Saints teachers and administration. Thanks to Angela Rakow and Linda Rivera for sacramental records work and preparation of First Communion certificates. Thanks to Father Adrian, John Riehle, Joanne Smith, and Jeanne Maanum for help with First Communion meeting nights.
Seventeen of the First Communion students attended weekly Faith Formation classes at St. Matthew for public school students. Nineteen of the First Communion students attend Community of Saints Regional Catholic School.
To register public school children for First Communion during the 2023-2024 school year, watch the St. Matthew website Faith and Learning page for a downloadable PDF registration form that will be live in August. Community of Saints families can register at the sacraments table on parent paperwork night in early August or on the back-to-school night at the end of August.
