From our Ministry Coordinator, Karen Glen:
FAITH FORMATION BEGINS: As the summer wraps up and families begin to set their plans to going back to school and get in the normal routine, as a Parish community we begin to make plans for the ongoing Faith Formation of our families. Catechetical Sunday is September 15th. This is the date set aside by the USCCB to acknowledge that parents are the first teachers of their children and that together with Catechists/Formally trained teachers we work together to live our Faith in the world.
Registration forms are available on our website or in the vestibule of the church. An Open House for all families will begin at 9 am in the Parish Cafeteria. There will be a blessing of Catechists and Families at the 10:30 am Mass on Sunday, September 15th.
Volunteers are welcome!: Do you have a love for God and children, that you would like to share with our families. Volunteers are welcome to join our Faith Formation team. If you are interested, please contact Karen @ 510-653-8631.
