One of the first activities that we resumed since the pandemic was the continuation of the preparation for the sacraments. We have 12 children for First Holy Communion. Ten of them will also receive the Sacrament of Baptism one week before their First Holy Communion.
Sister Inga works with the youth who have been helping us as catechists. We want to be sure that the children learn more than just reciting prayers, but that they understand and experience the love of God that comes to them through the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and Holy Communion. It is not an easy task in Haiti. To move beyond teaching children prayers is difficult, even for our seminarian that was helping us in the name of the parish. To memorize and recite what they learn seems to be a goal that most of the schools here set before themselves. However, to pass the parish exams, the children must learn all that is demanded. And they are ready.
