“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life. And I will raise them up at the last day.”

John 6:54

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life, which is why weekly Mass attendance is an essential part of every Catholic family.   All students preparing to receive the sacraments will be required to have their Mass attendance sheet signed every week by the presiding priest or deacon.  These will be turned in to their classroom teacher at the next class meeting.
