Palmer Catholic Academy Students celebrate Mass typically on Friday mornings at 9:45am, or on whichever day a Holy Day of Obligation may fall in the week. Students help prepare the liturgy, participate actively in the celebration by being Lectors, Cantors, singing in the Senior or Junior Choirs, Ushering and Altar-serving. It is a great way to end the week and start our Fridays in celebration and worship of our Lord.
STUDENTS ARE PREPARED FOR THE FOLLOWING SACRAMENTS AT PALMER CATHOLIC ACADEMY
The sacrament of reconciliation is an experience of the gift of God’s boundless mercy that frees us from our sins and also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church and in the Rite of Penance we read that the sacrament is a liturgical action. It is the Church’s opportunity to celebrate the presence of God in those areas of our lives needing conversion and forgiveness. First Reconciliation is celebrated in the Second Grade.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
The Sacrament of Eucharist is a Sacrament of Initiation. Eucharist/Communion is when we receive the true presence; Body, Blood and Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the common substance of bread and wine that has been consecrated during Mass. This Sacrament is typically celebrated in the Second Grade, during any Sunday Mass at OLSS in the month of May.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation and is closely connected to the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist. It completes the sacrament of baptism, brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace and strengthens the gifts of the Holy Spirit received at baptism. The Sacrament of Confirmation also leads us to the Eucharist as the way to live out our lives as fully initiated Catholics. Confirmation is typically celebrated in the Eighth grade.
