Christian Formation News
Grades K – High School
      All children from grade K – the end of Confirmation must register.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  You can pick up a form in the back of the church or you can visit the parish office Monday – Thursday during office hours or give us a call at 483-8481 and ask us to mail you a form.  We would be happy to do this

Grades K- 3  Classes for children in these grades have class every week between September 30 and May 15th except Christmas and Easter.  The children in grades 1 and 2 must attend regularly is they are to be prepared for their First Communion at the end of grade two.  This is a two year program.

Grades 4 – 10 +   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 last class for this school year was on Sunday, April 15th in Auburn.  We will resume classes in September.

Question of the Week
5th  Sunday of Easter  
Theme:
(Jesus Commands Us to Love One Another)
Reading
Acts of the Apostles 14:21-27 (The teachings of Paul and Barnabbas)
Reading
Rev.21: 1-5(God will wipe away all the tears from their eyes.)
Gospel:
John 13: 31-35 (I will Give you a New Commandment)

Question for Adults: Jesus’ commandment to love another as I love myself is a challenge.  What will you do this week to love yourself and in turn love your spouse/child(ren)?  Note:  Perhaps it would be beneficial to take some time in reflecting on your concept of loving yourself.  Although being good to yourself is a part of this picture, there is more to it than that.  The real question is,  “Do you love yourself, or do you feel inferior, incompetent, not worthy, ugly, etc?”  This is vital to answering the question of the week.  It is impossible to love someone else if you do not yet love yourself.   

Question for the Teens:  The world is full of examples of people who don’t love others.  What are the results of hate that you see in the world?  How would the world be different if we followed Jesus’ commandment?  Begin by looking around in your own home, neighborhood, school etc.  Don’t jump to examples of hate in the world.  This is too far removed to be realistic for you.  Once you have identified local examples, go on to national headlines.  You will see that it only gets worse.  Is it possible to change the world by following Jesus’ command to love?  Do you believe this?

Question for Children? Jesus loves us just the way we are.  Today is a good day to show someone around us that we love them just the way they are.

Community News 

First Communion . . .May 12, 2007

       On Saturday May 12th, some of our children will be making their First Communion.  We will be having the Mass at 4:00 pm on that day.  There will be No 6:00 PM Mass on May 12th.  You are welcome to attend this Mass.  The families of the First Communicants will take up about 2/3 of the church so this leaves plenty of room for those who wish to attend the Saturday evening Mass at 4:00.


CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
of New Hampshire is a statewide non-profit organization that recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the courts.  Our primary goal is to ensure that each and every child in the state is permitted to grow up in a safe and permanent home.  There are children waiting for someone to speak on their behalf.  Your common sense, commitment to children, and a contribution of 15 hours a month will help a child receive a safe, permanent and loving home. 
 CASA of NH currently has close to 380 volunteers throughout the state who are appointed by judges to serve in the role of guardian at litem  for over 1,000 of NH’s children.  This represents only 72% of the children who are in need of this service.  To become a CASA/GAL  volunteer and help the children in your community, please call 800-626-0622 or log onto www.casanh.org for more information.
