3 Sacramental Preparatin Requirements 2012/13 Belw are the requirements fr St. Jerme s sacramental preparatin prgram. Fr many f us ur lives are full f running back and frth with sprts, schl, errands, wrk, hbbies and mre, making it feel like we cannt pssibly fit ne mre thing in. The Lrd knws f ur busyness yet in Luke 10:25-28 he is asked hw we can inherit eternal life, and he answers yu shall lve the Lrd, yur Gd, with all yur heart, with all yur being, with all yur strength, and with all yur mind. The requirements belw are nt meant t be hps t jump thrugh fr yur kids t receive the sacraments, but rather they are meant t prepare yur family and t strengthen yur faith and lve fr Christ and His Church nt just this year, but fr the rest f yur lives. Attend Sunday Mass every week Attending Mass every week has always been an imprtant teaching f the Cathlic Church. This teaching is s imprtant that it is an actual Mrtal Sin if yu purpsefully miss Sunday Mass, and therefre yu need t g t Cnfessin befre receiving the Eucharist again. This teaching is meant t help us live mre dedicated lives t Christ. Many times we are s willing t have multiple practices and games every week fr sprts. We realize that the cmmitment is what makes us better at the sprt, but then we cmplain abut giving up just 1 hur fr Gd and attending Mass. The Church is wise, just like a cach, knwing that withut having it be mandatry we are less likely t g. By putting in just 1 hur f ur week, we receive s much mre than we culd hpe fr. We receive grace t make it thrugh anther week, and encuragement and grwth thrugh the readings, sngs, hmily, Eucharist, cmmunity and mre! When yu cntinue in a sprt, yu begin t desire t practice and g t games and becme better. Even mre will yur lve and desire t g t Mass grw as yu cntinue ging and puring yurself int the Mass. Yu must believe that the Cathlic Church and the Eucharist are imprtant if yu are here having yur child prepare fr the sacraments. We ask yu t shw this imprtance t yur child, and make sure t attend Mass every Sunday! Attend all meetings/dates listed Please refer t the Sacramental Preparatin Dates page fr listed dates. Signed Sacramental Preparatin Parent/ Guardian Cmmitment Frms These pages can be fund in this packet fr yu t review befre signing. We will review them at ur first meeting Sat. Nvember 10 th. This cmmitment is nt smething that we have made up, but rather a cmpilatin frm Church dcuments and dicesan requirements fr a child t receive the Sacraments. Parents agree t these things by the act f having their child receive the sacraments, but we want yu t visually see what yu are cmmitting t and make it cncrete. Yu will have a chance t sign these dcuments at specific preparatin meetings. Cntinued n back

4 Weekly Examinatin f Cnscience Part f preparing fr the Sacrament f Recnciliatin is reading thrugh the Children s Examinatin f Cnscience 1x a week in Schl r RED class, as well as 1x a week at hme as a family. It is a great habit fr everyne t examine hw they did and did nt serve Gd at the end f each day. We hpe that this exercise will help develp this habit within yur family, but als that it will help the child t learn what sins t cnfess t the priest. This activity culd have a great impact n yur family, giving yu the pprtunity t talk abut areas yu are struggling, a time t aplgize t ne anther and t help each ther grw in hliness.
