Thank You To All WHo Helped
    A Special thank you to all of you who gave of your time and energy on Saturday, December 24, to come to set up the CYAA building for Mass.  Your time and cooperation was very much appreciated.  We do realize that it is a juggle to get everything ready and still make time for Church work but your help is so very necessary.  Without you it would not be possible.
    Thank you also to all who stayed after the Mass to bring everything back to the church.  You are really wonderful people to work with.  Thank you!

Christian Formation News

Grades K – 3
    The children entering grades K- 3 this fall will be attending Lectionary Catechesis as they have been in the past.  The program began on the weekend of September 24/25th.  We hope to be able to offer the program at all Masses but we will have to have a sufficient number of teachers and monitors to staff the three Masses.  If we do not have enough volunteers we will have to limit the classes to two Masses.
Grades 4 – 10+
    All children in grades 4 – 10 will be attending the new program that is being initiated in the parish this year.  This means that they will attend classes once a month with their parents and the rest of the parish.  This class will be complimented by work at home which will enable the children to deepen their understanding of the theme of the month as well as to process the information on a day to day basis. 
.    Since there will be only one class per month, parents will be asked to commit this weekend time as a priority to Christian Formation. The class may be made up by attending the class at St. Peter Parish the following weekend.  The classes will begin in October.  A  schedule for the year  has been mailed out to parents who have children previously enrolled in Religious Formation. Our first class is Sunday, October 16, 2005 from 11am - 1pm. This next two classes for the year 2005 are November 13 and December 11.   If you are new to the parish or if you child is just beginning his/her formation, please call the parish office for a registration blank.

    Confirmation students will also meet one extra time per month.  The dates for the year 2005 are November 6 and December 4.  The time for class is at 12:30PM immediately following the 11:30 Mass in Auburn.  All students from both parishes will meet together in Auburn for this extra meeting.
