Beginning February 8
This year the Solemn Communion Group will begin meeting on February 8th from 9 to 11am in the Reading Room.
The process of Solemn Communion in the Episcopal church offers children around the age of eight a time to think more deeply about what it means to receive the gift of the Eucharist in preparation for making a "solemn communion."
The children meet for five two-hour sessions on Saturday mornings and then participate in an weekend retreat Friday evening from 4:30 to 6:30 and Saturday, March 15th from 9am to 4pm with a celebratory family Eucharist from 3-4pm and a short reception after.
Children must be able to attend at least 4 of the two-hour sessions as well as the retreat day to participate.
All are invited to attend the Eucharist at 4pm on Saturday, March 15th and share in this celebration with our children. There are two remaining sessions plus a retreat:
Saturday March 1st -2 hours (1-3pm)
Saturday March 8th - 2 hours (1-3pm)
Then children will participate in a weekend retreat:
Friday March 14th - 4:30-6:30pm
Saturday March 15 - 9:00am to 4pm, family Eucharist: 4-5pm
