Children’s Eucharist, Communion Class
The Episcopal Church has been welcoming children to the altar to receive the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist at an
earlier age than many of us who grew up in the Church “back in the day” experienced. This “healthy” change was
made to signify that baptism is full initiation into the Christian faith. This October/November Father Bill would like
to invite all children in the second grade or higher to join him for “Thursdays with Father Bill.” Parents, please mark
your calendars for the following dates: Wednesday, October 30, Thursday, November 7 and Thursday, November
14 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. The children will be celebrated on November 17 at the 10:30 a.m. service. These classes
traditionally have been a great deal of fun, and a lot of learning occurs. As in previous years, I would like parents
to officially sign their children up by leaving a voicemail on the church answering machine (860-529-7622).
These classes are a marvelous way for me to share my love as God’s representative to his beloved children here
in the parish.
