Autumn Prayer

O God of Creation, you have blessed us with the changing of the seasons.
As we embrace these autumn months,
May the earlier setting of the sun remind us to take time to rest.
May the crunch of the leaves beneath our feet remind us of the brevity of this earthly life.
May the steam of our breath in the cool air remind us that it is you who give us your breath of life.
May the scurrying of the squirrels and the migration of the birds remind us that you call us to follow your will.
We praise you for your goodness forever and ever.
Amen.

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:

  • This week I showed God's love by...
  • This week I was a peacemaker by...
  • Today at mass, I will pray for...

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.
