Teachable Moments Mass with Father Hickey 

Sacrament of First Holy Communion Lesson
  • Week of April 4: Happy Easter!

            A. Read Chapter 5 pages 42-43 and have your child add the stickers from the back of the book to pages 42-43 as you read the famous Scripture story about the multiplication of the loaves and fish.

            B. Use the Glossary at the back of the workbook to look up the bold face words and start to learn some of the vocabulary that we use when talking about our Catholic Faith.

            C. Read together pages 44-46. These pages cover the next part of the Mass – the Presentation/Preparation and Blessings of the Gifts. Even though young people don’t usually have money to bring as an offering talk to them about what they can bring to Mass as an offering – our good deeds, our kindness to others, our promise to try to pay attention at Mass etc. See page 46.

            D. Do the activity on page 47 together.

            E.  Review the Summary on page 50.

  • Week of April 11:

            A. Read Chapter 6 pages 52-53 and have your child add the stickers from the back of the book to pages 52-53 as you read the Scripture story about the Last Supper. Remind them that this is what we just celebrated on Holy Thursday during Holy Week before Easter. This last meal between Jesus and his disciples (Apostles) took place on the night before he was arrested and died on the cross.

            B. Use the Glossary at the back of the workbook to look up the bold face words and start to learn some of the vocabulary that we use when talking about our Catholic Faith.

            C. Read together page 54-56 as they take us through the next part of the Mass - The Liturgy of the Eucharist. These three pages are the source and summit of our Catholic Faith. They are a lot for young people to understand. Father Hickey will address this in a video presentation for the children and at the Teachable Moments Mass we recorded. It may be a good time to watch that part again while reading this chapter.

            D. Do the activity on page 57 together.

            E. Review the Summary on page 60.

            F. Do the Learning Reinforcement P for Chapters 5 and 6 together. Let me know if you have questions.
