Grades K- 3  Classes for children in these grades has resumed on the weekend of September 16/17.

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 was held on Sunday, October 15, 2006.  Our next class is scheduled for April 15 at St. Peter Church in Auburn.  The class will end at 5:30 and will be followed by a Pot Luck Supper for all who are in attendance.   Please call Diane Soucy at 483- 8854, our  contact person for the Supper, to let her know what you want to bring.   

Question of the Week
Easter Sunday – The Resurrection
(The Resurrection  of the Lord )
Acts of the Apostles 10: 37-43 (Witnesses of Christ)
Colossians 3: 1-4 (Seek What Is Above)
John 20:1-9 (Risen From the Dead)

Question for Adults: When have I been overcome by fear or a sense of hopelessness?  How did my faith in the Risen Lord strengthen me to deal with the situation?
    The event of the Resurrection is closely connected to our experience of dying in one way or other.  We have all experienced some type of “death”.  Perhaps it was a heart wrenching divorce,  an encounter with drugs or alcohol or being married to a spouse with those problems. Perhaps it was the experience of a death in the family or of a close friend.  All experience some type of suffering that leads us to know either an emotional, spiritual, or psychological downfall.   Resurrection in our life is the experience of  New Life.  Once we have been lifted from our depth of loneliness, depression, or an inability to believe in God, we know what Easter is all about.
    This week, take a few moments to reflect on your time of suffering or grief.  Have you seen New Life as a result?  How has you faith in God helped you to face your personal situation?

Question for Children? What is the one thing that makes me the happiest?  How can I share my happiness with my family?
    At some point this week, try to sit down with your child and talk about the things that make him/her happy, truly happy.  Encourage them to eliminate things that make them happy only for a few hours or minutes.  Then, ask them why these things make them happy.  Ask them to choose the one thing that makes them the happiest?  Then, ask them to think of a way that they can share their happiness with their family. 
Easter Greetings
