As part of our preparations for First Reconciliation, the Second Grade students at St. Francis de Sales were introduced to the Parable of the True Vine, where they heard Jesus’ words: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit because without me you can do nothing.” There are three presentations that will be shared prior to students receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Last Wednesday, February 24th, we presented True Vine I – with parents invited to join us virtually. During these presentations, the students continue on their journey, growing closer to the Good Shepherd and contemplating their ability to carry their own Light. First Reconciliation is scheduled for Friday, March 12th, following our weekly School Mass.
