Message from Elena

God, thank you for a new year. May everyone in our family be willing to begin anew with a clean slate. We know that You are always ready to forgive us. Help us to be willing to forgive ourselves and to forgive one another.

As we begin a new year, remind us of our truest values and our deepest desires. Help us to live in the goodness that comes from doing what You want us to do. Help us to put aside anxiety about the future and the past, so that we might live in peace with you now, one day at a time. Amen

Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year!
Elena & Karen

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:

  • Today, the person I will pray for is...
  • This week, I helped someone by...
  • This week, I showed forgiveness 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.
