First Eucharist Meeting
The next meeting for Candidates and parents for First Eucharist is Sunday, February 7, 2021. The candidates will be enrolled at the 9:30am Mass. The meeting will follow in the Parish Hall at 10:45am.
Safety protocols will be observed.
Our next session is Saturday, February 13 at 10:30am.
To All Parents and Guardians:
The Diocese has mandated that all students in Catholic Schools, Academies and Religious Education Programs participate in: “The Think First & Stay Safe Program.” As parents and adults, it is our primary responsibility to keep our children safe, the reality is that we cannot always be with them, but we can provide them with a foundation of knowledge and skills to help them recognize inappropriate and unsafe behavior.
The Child Lures Prevention Program will be offered to the students in our Faith Formation Program on Saturday, February 13, 2021 using Zoom as our platform, meeting information will be in next week’s bulletin as well as emailed the week of February 7th. You are more than welcome to join your child for this session.
Advent Projects were due on Sunday, January 10, 2021. If you have not turned them in, please do so. Also, Project # 2 Praying the Mass (K-4) Sacraments (5-8) are due this Sunday, January 24. Place them through the mail slot of the (tan) rectory door or give it to your child’s teacher. The projects have to be turned in to give your child credit for participation.
Be Safe, Be Healthy!

Pope Francis prayer to the Virgin Mary to watch over the world in this current moment of crisis.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at the Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform Ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas- we who are put to the test– and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Pope Francis—11 March 2020, 19:08
