Emily's First Reconciliation

Congratulations to Emily for making her First Reconciliation this evening at St. Mark Catholic Church!

Emily, along with her five classmates from St. Mark Catholic School and several CCD students, have been preparing for this special occaision for the last month.

I was amazed at how well she memorized her Act of Contrition! I remember the days back in grade school when memorization was so important. It seems now the thought is, "If you know how to look it up, there is no need to memorize."

Nicholas, Rebecca, and I all went to Confession as well. It was interesting, as we were walking out of church, how determined the kids were to compare their penances, like the length and amount of the penance equaled the severity and number of your sins!
