First Communion only if...

Oct 9th 2012 new

I have a set of twin girls who should receive their First Confession and Communion this year. Quick background - I have much less than 50% custody and I'm somewhat kept away by their father. I have asked and pleaded, and finally he says they can enroll in religious ed classes, but only if I pay for it and drive them every week. He lives within half a mile of the church. I live an hour away. But I agreed. It's so important. Now it is way past the registration deadline and classes have begun. I feel disheartened and embarrassed to call the DRE. I'm afraid I'll be a weeping mess. sad

I hate being divorced.

Call the office and tell them you want to enroll the girls now. If the secretary says it is too late, ask to speak to the Religious Department director and tell her/him: "The children's father was against it but finally agreed. This was the delay." Promise that you will work to bring the girls up to speed on the class material.

I started my children very late into their CCD classes but they did catch up. We can't let our embarrassment, guilt, or other emotions hold us back from speaking up and getting what we need for our children hug

Pharaoh's heart is further moved... He says he'll take the kids for FF during his parenting time, and he and his girlfriend were at Mass (um...awkward!). When we were together, our household was consecrated to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. He has since gotten rid of the pictures.But even so, and even though we are annulled, he is their father and I pray for his salvation. I hope something clicks. I also hope the rug doesn't get pulled out from under me as it almost always does... Hope can be tricky. God, I place them in your hands. Bind them in your love.
