2nd Grade Faith Journey

Second grade is a special year in the Catholic faith. Students prepare for and make their First Reconciliation during the first months of school. It is exciting for the students to receive God’s forgiveness and grace through this sacrament. On Monday, November 16, the second graders from St. Pat’s and the religious education students participated in a special candle lighting prayer service prior to receiving the sacrament for the first time. It focused on Jesus as the light of the world. This light is always there for us to follow. However, when we sin that light goes out. By receiving God’s forgiveness, light returns to our lives and we get another chance to make better choices and become a better person. Soon the students will begin preparing for their next big faith event which is First Communion.
