What’s happening with Christian Formation?

I guess the saying is true… Time flies when you’re having fun! I mean, where did April go?

April was full of learning and celebrating in Sunday School. We kicked off Holy Week with our own blessing of the Palms and a visit from Father Kevin! On Maundy Thursday, several of our children participated in the Ascension Agape Supper after which our Youth stayed up all night praying, discussing, participating in outreach activities, and having fun (of course) at our annual Night Watch. Good Friday gave us a special stations of the cross and Easter, well, Easter was just beautiful and fun with our visit from the Easter Bunny. But even with all of that, the learning never stopped, including the confession of sin. A special shout out goes to the Acolytes who did an outstanding job during Holy Week!

So now what? I’m glad you asked… we actually continue to celebrate Easter and prepare for Pentecost!

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!
