December Update!

December is a busy month not just in Faith Formation but in the parish as a whole! As we enter Advent I hope you take a moment to check out some of our Advent resources for families.

Here are a couple!

If you are on Pinterest, there are many ideas that can be done with your family at home and some that we bring into the classroom! Here is a link to one page

Advent ideas on Pinterest

Strong Catholic Families is a comprehensive resource with links to many other places. Take a look and see if any interest you!

Since Advent is a season of service as we prepare for the Second Coming of Christ, much of our focus as a program is on Service. 

Grades 7-10 choose which day of service they want to take part in, or both! :D WE will meet again int he church basement and help sort and box the food that has been collected for our fellow parishioners who are in need of assistance.

                Saturday, Dec. 2nd, 9-11a in the church basement
