Prayer for the Start of a New Year

O God, we long to know you and to love you,
but the busyness of life often gets in the way.
Help us to recognize the ordinary, daily ways
that our family can learn about you and grow closer to you.
We know that you are with us, leading us and guiding us on our way.

Amen.

      

NOTE: Registration for the 2018-2019 is now closed. Thank you to all who registered.

WEEKLY REFLECTIONS

Weekly reflections are meant to help children participate in the mass as well as begin the practice of including Jesus in their everyday lives.

The 3 rotating questions this year are:

  • Jesus, Please help me to...
  • Thank you Jesus for...
  • This week I practiced my faith by...

Reflection sheets are found on the small table in the hall each week and are to be filled out before each mass and dropped in the basket by the Holy Water font when you walk into the church. Children celebrating a sacrament this year are to get their passports, located at the back of their books, stamped at the END of mass in the narthex instead of filling out a reflection. Weekly reflections also serve as our record for mass attendance.

*As per our Catholic obligation, we are asked to attend mass every week. In order to complete this component of the program we ask families to attend at least twice a month.
