Holy Family Academy
|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
enrolled in Religious Formation. Our first class is Sunday, October 16,
2005 from 11am - 1pm. The January and February Classes are scheduled as follows. January 15, 2006 and February 12, 2006. Both classes will be held from 11:00 – 1:00 pm. If you are new to the

Question of the Week
5th Sunday of Ordinary Time
(Preaching and Healing)
: Job 7:1-4,6-7 (The Cry of Job)
: 1Cor. 9:16-19, 22-23 (Preaching the Gospel)
: Mark 1: 29-39 (Curing the Sick)
Question for Adults: How can I offer others the healing and wholeness given to me by Jesus?
Before offering anything at all to others we must take some time to look
at our own lives with respect to the gifts offered and freely given to us
by God. If we are not able to identify these gifts of healing and wholeness
in our own lives, it could be that we are unable to recognize them for what
they are. If this is true we will be equally at a loss to offer them
God offers us the gifts of healing in varied ways.
He may bring us into contact with someone who is able to help us through
a crisis. He may work through the experience of a family difficulty.
Sometimes God will “reach” us in spite of our stubbornness and pride.
Many of us have experience a healing while on a retreat or through
a spiritual director. God never seems to fall short of ways to come
to us for healing.
The other factor that we need to consider is, “What exactly
does God heal us from?” Although we know that God has the power to
heal us from our physical ailments, we must be aware that God will also heal
us from spiritual ailments. These are as varied as the human person.
We may be healed from our anger or resentment or our lack of trust.
The list goes on and on. Whatever it is that makes us less than whole
as a human being can be added to our list. God is always willing to
heal us from our pain and “death” like symptoms.
Once we have taken the time to reflect on this matter
for ourselves we will be ready to return the favor for others. Although
we do not have God’s power we certainly have the power to help others in
Question for Children? How can I be a servant to others this week?
Perhaps it would be good to help you children understand
the real meaning of “servant” in this context. It is very easy to give
a wrong interpretation since we, as Americans are accustomed to one definition
in particular and it is not a positive one. Help your children to understand
that servant means being in sync with the will of God and of Jesus.

Bereavement Support Groups

and concluding March 7, 2006. Once is a General Group supporting
those who have experienced the death of a spouse, sibling, friend
etc. The other is a Motherless Daughter Group open to any women
who has experienced the death of her mother no matter how long it has
been. The general group will meet on Tuesday morning from 10:30
to noon and the Motherless Daughter group will meet Tuesday evenings
from 6 to 7:30 pm. Both groups will meet at the Rockingham VNA
and Hospice office at 137 Epping Road in Exeter, NH.

individuals better understand the grief process and meet others who
have also experienced the death of a loved one. Sharing the pain
can help ease some of the loneliness and feelings of isolation.
