I am the second grade catechist. I have been a part of the school of religion for 10 years.
I have a 17 year old daughter who is a senior at Shawnee Mission East. I have 2 dogs, a cat and many fish.
Second Grade will be using the Alive in Christ textbook by Our Sunday Visitor.
Grade Level Expectations
These prayers help provide us with a glimpse into the foundations of our Faith and a base from which our children can learn how to live their Faith.
In our religious education classes, we begin and end with a prayer. We ask that Parents help teach these prayers and lists to your children. Praying regularly at home will help them to master the required prayers for use in their lifetime. The Archdiocese offers guidelines of prayers to be learned at each grade level.
Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me into sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen

Process of the Sacrament of Reconciliation
Going to Confession…
Make an Examination of Conscience
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Bless me Father, for I have sinned, this is my first confession
These are my sins -
Tell Father what you wish to be forgiven for and how often you think these sins happen
Father I am sorry for these sins and all the sins of my past life.
The priest will then give you some spiritual guidance, and a penance.
Recite your Act of Contrition
The priest will give absolution (forgiveness) and then the Preist will say — Go in Peace
You respond— Thanks be to God.
