Update from Holy Cross Faith Formation

Dear Faith Formation Families-

I trust you are doing well and staying healthy during this extended situation we find ourselves in.  Like you, I’m praying this will clear up so we can get back to some sense of “normalcy”.

I thought it would be good to send a letter to provide an update.  Since we don’t fully know how the situation is going to progress in the weeks and months ahead, we ask you to continue to pray for both wisdom and faith as we navigate these uncharted waters.

  • Your children’s Sacraments are very precious to us, we are waiting for our Bishop’s approval and guidelines to re-open.
  • We’re planning to accommodate your children’s Sacraments as soon as it is safe to do so.

While we wait, we would like to continue getting children ready for Reconciliation and First Communion. Please help them to complete their formation doing the following:

From the Eucharist “Go and Seek”  Eucharist Student booklet. (you received it with the banner materials).

A)  Read the 10 readings:

1.- We are part of the Church.

2.- Jesus cares for us.

3.- We ask for forgiveness.

4.- We give thanks to God

5.- We learn from the Bible

6.- We are United in Faith

7.- We celebrate the gift of  the Eucharist.

8.- We pray as Jesus taught us.

9.- Jesus is present with us.

10.- We are sent forth to share love.

B)  Please talk to your children about “things to remember.”

C)  Make sure you have banners ready for when the time comes.

As  for enrichment, you may do the “chapter activities” and the “Eucharist Treasure Map”.

Once we have permission from our Bishop, we will be sending out dates for you to RSVP.

Please let me know if you don’t have all the materials you need to conclude with your child’s formation.

I want to thank everyone for your patience and prayers during these uncertain times. I’m looking forward to continuing my ministry at Holy Cross Parish and celebrating the Sacraments with your children.


In Christ,

Claudia Manrique
