Faith Formation theme for this school year is: #WITNESS
We are all witnesses of God’s love in each other and in ourselves. During the school year the students in classes 1 – 9 will share stories how they have witnessed God’s presence in their life, we have also asked their parents to share stories with their children how they have witnessed God’s presence. The classes with the help of their teachers will write down # Witness signs to share with everyone. They will be hung going up the staircase in the Parish center. Join us during the year as we all try to become better Disciples for Jesus, as we bear Witness to Jesus love.
Special classes for First Holy Communion will take place starting this weekend. First Holy Communion which will take place in May. Please keep these children and their families in your prayers.
Next weekend the Confirmation students will attend the 10:00 am Mass and then go over to the Parish Center for their Retreat. Confirmation will take place on April 5th. Please keep these students in your prayers as they continue to prepare for this special Sacrament.
