January Week 1 Faith Formation

As we look ahead, let us also begin the year with a regular prayer life…fixing our eyes and our hearts securely on Our Lord and Savior. Here’s a couple sources that I turn to on a daily basis:

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy in Song - The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a powerful prayer that is meant to pray for yourself and others. HERE is a beautiful version.

Bible in a Year – This is through Ascension Press and is currently the #1 Podcast in America. There are several ways you can receive it daily.  Click HERE to learn more.

Please view our January Parent Video as we look at the questions; “What can we learn from Jesus about how to live?” and “What is Baptism?”  We’ll be exploring how Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life and that it is only through Baptism that we become a child of God.  Watch HERE.

Catholic Schools Week Appreciation Card Shower

In honor of Catholic Schools Week, our Faith Formation students are hosting a card shower in honor of Father John and Sister Judy.

Please join in thanking each of them for their sacrifices and for the living witness that they are to our parish community. This has been an especially trying year, and what better time to reach out with thanks and gratitude to both of them.

Send or drop cards off in the parish office, Attn: Janice Anderson, no later than Friday, February 5th. They will be delivered soon after, to both Fr. John and Sr. Judy.

We invite ALL families and parish members to join us in prayer and thanksgiving for these two wonderful people who bless our parish IMMENSELY!  Thank you for your participation!
