Dear First Communion Children and your Beloved Parents

Download here: Dear First Communion Children and your Beloved Parents

+ “Laudetur Iesus Christus” (May Jesus Christ will be praised) – You should respond: … “in secula seculorum. Amen” (forever and ever. Amen)

I write this letter, because I wonder how You are and I miss You very much. This time is very difficult in many ways for many people around, but generally for all of us. I’m very grateful for all your beautiful drawings which You have shared on our Facebook profile, or You have sent them to me. I would like to assure You that all of them are printed and one day we’ll organize an exposition of your work during this lockdown time.

As most of You know, the churches are locked and we can’t gather for the Holy Mass, we do not know how long yet. But, many of You attend our live-streaming celebrations of the Holy Mass, or Divine Mercy Chaplet. I also hear people’s confessions – keeping all the hygienic restrictions – and give them Holy Communion when they book their time with me. You can do it as well, if You miss the Holy Sacraments (of course your beloved parents, not You yet).

But – from this week I open the possibility for any of the families, who live in the same home to attend the Holy Mass in the Church. If you wish, just book it with me and You can come.
Or, I can come with Jesus Christ in the Holy Communion to your door and give Him to You (of course your parents, not You yet).

YOUCAT for KIDS –

I’ll deliver to you, my gift for You – YOUCAT for KIDS – Catechism of the Catholic Church especially suitable for You, so You will know your faith more and more, and love Jesus Christ deeper and deeper. You will share with me your questions and conclusions when we will meet on Wednesdays at 10.30am.

 

Pay it forward’?

Have you ever watched a film, movie ‘Pay it forward’? I presume you had not watched yet, because it can be watched from 12 years old. But I was thinking on this difficult time, how to do something for you, that you will enjoy, be interested in, be in favour, fill a free time etc. and, through the prayer to the Holy Spirit an idea came, which is coming from this film ‘Pay it forward’. So, I will deliver to one of You something every second day (or sometime even every day) and the family who already used ‘the thing’ will pass it on to the next person – so it will be some kind of chain, which will enable us to be in touch, to do something about our faith, to always wait for something and give something.

I hope you understand my poor English.

So, I attach to this delivery also the address of the family, to whom (after your day’s turn of keeping and hopefully using) you need to pass ‘the item’ you have received from someone else. I hope you’ll like it. Who knows, maybe this way of the pastoral work will be useful also for the future!

KEEP SAFE, healthy, and faithful my DEAR FRIENDS AND BROTHERS & SISTERS IN CHRIST

With priestly Blessings Fr Marcin
