Enrollment information for First Holy Communion preparation

Enrollment for the 2020/2021 school year is open! Classes will start in September 2020. Please use this form to sign up your student(s) and send it to the ESM Office.

While the ESM would like to offer preparation classes at St. Thomas Aquinas (Hannoversche Str. 5 in Berlin-Mitte) for the 2020/2021 school year, the Masses at this location are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As attendance at Mass is a key feature of educating the children about the mystery of the Eucharist, the prudential decision was taken to defer the start of classes at this location until the 2021/2022 school year. The contact person and main volunteer catechist at St. Thomas Aquinas location is Marielle Tierney.

Ongoing Family Catechesis - between First Holy Communion and Confirmation

The ongoing catechesis of children who have made their First Holy Communion, but have not yet been confirmed takes place within the Family of Faith program. This program serves families who have at least one child who has made his/her First Holy Communion. Younger and older siblings are welcome to attend. THIS PROGRAM IS currently FULL, but we are hoping to open a new group soon.
