What’s happening with Christian Formation?

How fast January flew by!!  And how quickly Epiphany is flying by….but we are hearing some great lessons in our chapel that are teaching us how to act like Jesus in our everyday life.  We will continue to hear these stories through Epiphany to the weeks leading up to Lent.

Blueberry will continue on his adventures, please be sure to email pictures of your kids with him so we can add them to our Instagram Wall.

During Lent, we will talk about focusing on what we can do better. The kids will be asked to set a goal for themselves for the next 40 days.

Sunday, February 3rd will be our parish annual meeting.  We will have one service at 9:30am, with Sunday School that day starting at 9:30am.  There will be a luncheon, followed by the annual meeting.  If you are new to the parish, the meeting is about an hour and it is great way to learn about the different things the parish has to offer.

We will continue our acolyte training session on Sunday, February 10th, due to the annual meeting on Sunday, February 3rd.  Acolytes are the torch bearers, crucifers and thurifers that serve on the altar during the 10:30am mass.  This program is open to any children 3rd grade or higher.  The children are typically scheduled once a month to serve.  It is a great way for the kids to further their involvement with the church.

Please be sure to follow the church on Facebook (Church of the Ascension-Rockville Centre), on Instagram (ascensionrvc)  and check out the new website http://www.ascensionrvc.org/ for updates and pictures.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.  If you have any suggestions for fun or would like to volunteer please feel free to contact myself or Father Kevin.
