Grade 2 Program

The Grade 2 Program at Queen of the Rosary Parish focuses on preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion.  Key objectives are:

  • to realize God’s loving care for us
  • to respond to God’s call to give ourselves in loving service to Him and others
  • to prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Students use Christ Our Life, God’s Gift: Reconciliation, and God’s Gift: Eucharist texts to learn about God’s care for us and the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion. Each child also receives My Big Book of Catholic Bible Stories to develop an understanding and love of Scripture.  In addition, each child receives a personal booklet: My Own Mass Booklet
