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 runs from mid-September to mid-May.  We do offer the program at all Masses .
 
Grades 4 – 10+
 This year we are initiating a new program for the children in these grade levels.  The classes are held once a month and the program is geared to the entire family. Parents are asked to attend the sessions as there is an adult component to the program. Our first class was Sunday, October 16, 2005 from 11am – 1pm.  The last two classes of the school year are:  April 2, and May 21, 2006.    All classes will are held from 11:00 – 1:00 pm.  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 date for  March is as follows: March 5, 2006.  It will be held at 12:30PM immediately following the 11:30 Mass in Auburn.  All students from both parishes will meet together in Auburn for these meetings.

Dear Parishioners of St. Paul,
    No doubt you have read or heard in the media that the first audit for Protecting God’s Children has been completed and the state has found some of the areas of our diocesan contract still wanting.      Just as a point of reference, we want to inform you that St. Paul was not of the parishes that was found not in accord with the requirements of the agreement.  St. Paul was not audited but if we had been we would no doubt have passed most if not all of the requirements. 
    We do have a Safe Environment coordinator who was trained and is aware of the needs of the parish.  We have also had all volunteers who work with children, complete the required paper work and all who work with children have agreed to a criminal background check.  These checks were acquired.  The few people who did not agree to fulfilling the requirements were taken off our ministry lists and are no longer serving the parish.
    Our only area of weakness is in the area of Religious Education monitors.  It sometimes happens that the monitor does not show up for his/her scheduled day, thus leaving the classes with no monitor.  Thus far we have never cancelled any classes but we will begin to do so if necessary.

Question of the Week
Easer Sunday The Resurrection
Theme: (He Is Risen)
Reading I: Acts 10:34, 37-43 (Raised on the Third Day)
Reading II: Colossians (Think of What is Above)
Gospel:  John 20:1-9  (Risen from the Dead)

Question for Adults:    How have God’s mysterious ways in my life given me hope and new life? 
    This question presupposes the fact that we spend some time reflecting on God’s ways in our lives.  Unfortunately many people do not take the time for reflection on this topic.  Not only is their schedule filled with daily activities, but even when they are presented with a reprieve, they are at a loss to focus on God’s ways in and around them.
    If you are a person who has thus far failed to reflect on God’s ways in your life, this Easter season would probably be an excellent time to give yourself the gift of this New Life.  Take the time to think of how you have arrived at that place where you now “reside”.
     What are some of the ups and downs that have “interfered” with your desires yet ultimately have helped to shape you present situation?  Who are some of the people that have come into your life, that have equally shaped your life?  Are they the people you would have guessed would have made a difference on your journey? 
    If you are a person who has already taken much time in reflection then perhaps you would like to take this time to focus your perspective on the more negative experiences of your journey and take the time to accept them into your life, perhaps forgiving people for hurting you or perhaps taking the time to thank God for his goodness to you despite your blindness.
    Wherever we are on our journey, we can all take this Easter season to experience God’s life in us.

Question for Children?   How can I spread joy this week?  Joy is a virtue that is within our power to experience and to share.  It is not simply laughing at a good joke however.  Joy is something that resides from deep within.  This does not mean that young children are unable to share this gift.  The simple presence of a loving child can produce much joy for an older person.  Such things as sharing and sincerely smiling at someone can have the same effects.
