On May 9th, our first grade students and parishioners received the Sacrament of Holy Communion, the third of the Sacraments of Initiation. First Holy Communion is the culmination of a period of reflection, instruction, and preparation. For students of St. Theresa, this takes place as part of the curriculum. For other children, the instruction is provided through the CCD program.
At the traditional 4th Grade Tea, each 4th grader invites a guest (mother, grandmother, aunt, Godmother) and shares with their class a written story about what they love most about their guest.
