WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD BEGIN RECEIVING COMMUNION?

The decision of when your child will receive communion is one that every parent should prayerfully consider. The study of scripture, guidance by the Holy Spirit, and consideration of family beliefs are some of the things that help direct this decision. Regardless of when you choose for your child to begin receiving communion, Good Shepherd partners with families by offering Communion instruction beginning in 4th grade.

2021 RETREAT & CELEBRATION INFORMATION

This year, we have two date options to choose from: Saturday, March 6 OR Saturday, March 13. Both retreats will be from 9am – 11:30am CST.

Communicants will come with their parent(s), or other significant adult, to learn more about who God is and who we are as His children.

Prior to the selected retreat day, our team will provide you and your family with resources and conversations to begin at home.

There is a cost to the retreat day for materials ($30/per Communicant). Scholarships are available as needed.

If you have any questions about this year’s Communion Retreat, please contact us at children@goodshepherd-napervile.org.
