Elizabeth has been taking catechism classes through the church for the last few weeks in order to prepare for her first Communion.
Creighton also asked that she memorize John 6:54-56 "Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him." and review the catechism Q's 110-115 pertaining to Holy Communion.
I took her out of school early today to come to church and do one last session with Creighton. First they talked a bit and then we got to go to the Sacristy for a field trip! After getting to see all the pieces used for Communion, Elizabeth practiced how to take the host and drink from the cup using water and unconsecrated bread.
It was pretty amazing preparation and we are very much looking forward to Sunday.
