Students either attend 18 Sunday Masses in Person (you need to make reservations – please see Parish website for directions) OR watch them online. For each Mass there should be two pages of reflection/summaries – The first page should indicate the date of the Mass and which priest presided and should include a summary of the priest’s homily. The second page should be a reflection on the Gospel Reading – what did it mean to you and how can you use it in your life. We are looking for their summaries to be grade level appropriate. ALSO required are once a month live Zoom classes with discussion (September through March) We ask that the parent watch these with their child(ren). Emails will go out with the Zoom class information time and sign-in.
