In First Holy Communion, children will prepare to meet the Lord Jesus in this very special sacrament. The ritual of First Holy Communion celebrates the child’s second step toward full initiation into the Church. The Eucharist is the greatest gift that Jesus gave to us – the gift of himself. It is a gift that takes a whole lifetime to open;  a gift that requires a response from us. That is why it is so special and why we must take such care that our children are well-prepared.

At Sacred Hearts, our keiki take an active role in our school masses.  Each grade takes their turn at hosting a mass, lending their voices to the celebration.  The grade hosting the mass, takes the lead role in the readings.  The children in that grade also make up the choir for that mass and put a great deal of effort into practicing.  The result is truly a mass for the children (by the children) and we welcome parents to attend.

This Sunday's Readings

What is Advent? Advent 1C (Catholic Kids Media)

"As you gather as a family, recall the tradition of making New Year's resolutions in preparation for the new calendar year. Observe that today is the first Sunday of Advent, which is the beginning of the new Church year. During the season of Advent, our Gospel readings ask us to consider what is most important to us as we prepare for Jesus' coming, at his birth and at the end of time. Read today's Gospel, Luke 21:25-28,34-36. Jesus describes signs that may disturb many people, but he says that these should not to disturb his disciples. Why? (because these signs indicate that redemption is near) What does Jesus say that his disciples should do? (Be vigilant and pray for strength.) At this start of the new Church year, consider as a family what “Advent resolutions” your family might make to help you stay focused so that you will be prepared to receive the salvation we celebrate at Jesus' birth and anticipate at Jesus' second coming. Pray together for God's help in following through on these resolutions. Pray together today's psalm, Psalm 25."
