What’s happening with Christian Formation?

Welcome to Lent!!  We kicked off Lent with our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper and how delicious it was!!  This past Sunday, the children lead the service and they did a beautiful job!!!

During Lent, we will hear the stories that lead us up to Holy Week and talk about focusing on what we can do better, rather than sacrificing or giving something up.  The kids have been asked to set a goal for themselves for the next 40 days.  We are also continuing our annual Lenten project of coin boxes.  The boxes will be handed out this Sunday, this is to collect change and bring the box back on Good Friday and they will be sent to Jerusalem.  Instead of the Mary Brennan Inn collection in March, we will be asking the kids to bring in a pair of light weight pajamas in a size 4 to 7 and a new book for a child from ages 3 to 5 years old.

We hope that everyone has been enjoying our monthly Children’s Breakfast with Father Kevin, as it is a great opportunity for the kids to learn about the church and be able to see things up close and personal inside the church.  Our next breakfast will be on Sunday, March 26th at 9:30am.

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 the parish has a soup and scripture session, where Father Kevin leads a discussion about the bible that will begin on Wednesdays in March, starting March 1st at 6:30pm.

The parish will have several of activities during Lent and of course Holy Week, please stay tuned for upcoming announcements!!  The children will be participating in the Maundy Thursday dinner and service.  Please let me know if you will be attending the dinner and service.

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.
