October Newsletter

Dear Families,

 October with the Fall Harvest is a beautiful month of God’s creation.  We also celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.  The Pope stressed the journey theme when he spoke as a pilgrim to Fatima emphasizing the need to be the sources of hope for others.  May this year be one of hopeful promise for all of us!

Looking Ahead:

No class on Columbus Day, Monday and Tuesday,  October 9 and 10 and no class on Halloween,  October 30 and October 31.

No class on Monday or Tuesday, November 20 or 21,  Week of Thanksgiving.

Mission Rosaries will be coming home with the children during the month of October.  October is also known as the month of the rosary and we encourage families to pray the rosary together.  Children will be learning the rosary prayers in class.

I extend a special thank you to the new catechists and to our experienced ones who have responded to the call for additional volunteers in sharing faith in the ministry of catechesis.  Father Damian commissioned all on Wednesday evening, August 30 and expressed his gratitude as well for their time, commitment, and expertise in teaching.   Class sizes have remained stable and for this unselfish dedication we ask for you to support them as well throughout the year.
