Grades 4 – 10 + Last
year we initiated 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 strongly urged to attend the
sessions as there is an adult component to the program which helps them
to deepen their knowledge of the faith as well as making it possible
for them to compliment the practice of the faith in the home. Our
first class will be on Sunday, October 15, 2006. This year, the
classes will be held from 4:00 – 6:00 pm here at St. Paul’s.

Question for Adults: When
has my faith
helped me in times of struggle or difficulty?
This week’s Gospel speaks to us
about the inability of many of
Jesus’ followers to “swallow” his words.
They cannot believe him. Their
faith falls beneath the rafters and they must walk away.
This is a sad moment for Jesus because he
knows that their faith is what will enable them to survive many a
tempest in life.
This week’s question will take a
while to answer simply because
there could be dozens of times, if not more, that will surface when you
the time to reflect on it. We experience
struggle and difficulty at every stage of our lives.
In all honesty we experience difficulties
every year of our lives. There is never
a lack of things to remember when it concerns struggles and difficulty. There are, however, those times when our
faith has helped us to survive very difficult situations.
How did your
faith help in these
instances? If you had been in the crowd
with Jesus on the day when he delivered his message to his followers,
think you would have stayed or walked away?
Do you think you would have realized that you were
walking away from
something essential to your well being?
Think about those difficult times in your life. Can you afford to lose your faith? After reflecting on your life, can you afford
to walk away from the one who brought you this far?
Perhaps you could use the words of Peter,
:Master, to whom shall we go?”
Question for Children? Who
person I trust and how does that trust help me? Help
your child to think
of people they know and trust. You might
want to encourage them to make a short list and to pick the one they
most and then think about the reasons.
You may also want to begin by explaining the concept
of trust if you
child is too young to understand on their own.
A short discussion of the value of trust in families
or between friends
is also a good way to approach this question.
