Religious Education Parent Update 4/5/17

Wednesday blessings everyone,

My apologies for the delayed update this week. Have you ever had one of those weeks where you thought you took care of things and then realized you hadn’t? I totally thought I sent this on Monday and realized late this morning that I had never sent it! EEK!

TONIGHT is the final night of the Lenten Parish Mission given by Fr Aidan Peter, Wednesday, April 5th Mass at 6:15pm followed by 7pm talk. (This will be one of the final parent Faith Growth Opportunities for the RE year. Attending counts as a Faith Growth opportunity for RE parents of year 1 & year 2 Communion students. One is required each year.)

Tomorrow, Thursday, April 6th is our Parish Lenten Penance Service in the church at 7:00pm. There will be close to a dozen priests available to hear confessions. This is a great opportunity to receive the healing sacrament before Easter.

Reminder: The CRS Rice Bowls need to be turned in to your son/daughter’s classroom/teacher this week April 5th or 6th.

This notice is going home with your children in class today and tomorrow to remind you that we have a 2 week break from classes due to Holy Week and Easter.

REMINDER:

We will take a break for Easter

NO classes Holy Week April 12th & 13th

NO classes Easter week April 19th & 20th

April is Child Abuse prevention month and each year or parish’s Safeguard the Children Committee sponsors an evening for parents focused on keeping our children safe. This year’s topic is Human Trafficking and what we can do to fight it and keep our children safe. This year our event is Thursday, April 27th from 6:30-8:00pm  in the Parish Hall and our Guest Speaker is Sister Stella Enright DMJ, a Daughter of Mary and Joseph with years of experience in educating children and parents on a range of topics related to keeping children safe. Don’t miss out on this very informative talk. (This will be the final parent Faith Growth Opportunity for the RE year. Attending counts as a Faith Growth opportunity for RE parents of year 1 & year 2 Communion students. One is required each year.)

Thought for the week: “99 problems, 99,000 blessings.” –Project Happiness

Blessings on your week,
