First Eucharist (2nd grade students)

First Eucharist helps students understand and excites them about the bread and wine becoming the body and blood of Jesus, how they prepare for receiving Him, and what it all means.

This retreat is meant to help students encounter the overwhelming love of God. They will reflect on their personal experiences with love and explore how they can find authentic love in relationship with God rather than trying to fill their desires for Him with distractions or counterfeit love. Students will then be encouraged to live out that love of God in their interactions with others.

In this retreat, students will be introduced to the idea of the Holy Spirit as a someone, not a something: the Spirit of Jesus who lives in us--who thinks, acts and loves. They will begin to understand what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how to go forth and live their lives, empowered by the Holy Spirit to share their faith with others through word and action.
