Group Work Camp: It’s time for our April meeting.  We will be meeting on Friday, April 17th, at 7:00pm at St. Peter’s church, in the parish hall.  The entrance is in the back of the church.  We will need you to bring your paperwork.  Please remember that the final deposit payment is due now and must be received by the meeting date.  If you can’t make the meeting, call one of us and e can have you leave your paperwork on the back porch of the rectory.  Laura 483-5125  or Linda 483-0560.

    Holy Apostle Paul, help me at the beginning of this new day to offer my body and the whole of my life as a living sacrifice to God.  Do not permit me to conform myself to this age but rather, by your intercession, may I be transformed by the renewal of my mind.  Through this renewal help me to judge what is God’s will, what is good, pleasing, and perfect.  For the one whom I seek and serve is who is the Lord, Jesus Christ, now and forever.  Amen

Christian Formation News

      All children from k – 10 must register for Religious Education each year.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  We will be mailing a registration form through e-mail in the near future.  If you have not received a form by mid-August it is because we do not have your e-mail address or perhaps you are not yet registered in the parish so we do not have any pertinent information related to you family.  You can call the office between Monday –Thursday at 483-8481 to update your e-mail info or you can pick up a registration in the entrance of the church.

Grades K- 3  The children in grades K – 3 attend classes during the weekend liturgies.  We use a Lectionary Catechesis which is based on the Gospel of the week.  Kindergarten students are not obliged to attend regularly. However beginning with grade 1, students must attend classes on a weekly basis during the Mass, as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  The program for the school year 2008-2009 will begin on the weekend of September 20th and 21st.  Classes are held during both weekend Masses.

Grades 4 – 10 +, Generation of Faith     This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents who have children in grades  4 - 10 are asked to attend these monthly sessions. The adult session gives them an opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith as well as giving them the chance to share with other adults on pertinent issues of faith. The next class for parents and children in this program will be April 5, 2009 at St. Peter Parish in Auburn.  All GoF classes are held on Sundays from 4 – 6 pm.

Confirmation Program: 
    The Confirmation students will begin their two year program on Sunday, October 5, 2008.  Classes are held from 11:00 am to 12 noon. Students must be registered in the program and must be registered members of the parish.  If you have not yet registered your child for classes please call the office to speak to Lorette.

                     Schedule of Classes

Easter Sunday- The Resurrection
(The resurrection of Our Lord)
Reading I: 
Acts 10: 37-43(We Are Witnesses)
Reading II:
Colossians 3: 1- 4(Seek What is Above)
John 20:1-9 (The Empty tomb)

Question for Adults:  Do I try to put myself in the place of the Gospel personages as they relate to Jesus after he has Risen? Easter is a perfect time to find our hearts burning with joy.  The late Pope John Paul II taught us that there should be new enthusiasm and new expressions to bring the Person of the risen Christ to others.  Each of us becomes Cleopas and Jesus is our companion on the road we find ourselves on today.  We as believers are on fire.  He asks us to use our energy, gifts, power, grace, to spread the simple yet overwhelming message that “He lives”.  And He lives with us, in you and me.  That is the reason we celebrate Easter.

Question for Children:  Do I remember that Jesus is alive in my heart and I can always tell him that I love him?  It is important to teach our children that Easter is about New Life.  This New Life is about having a loving heart for everyone just like Jesus had for his friends and the way he continues to have for each one of us.  It is also important to remind our children that Jesus is not dead.  He is very much alive.  He lives in each and every one of us if we allow him to.  Ask you child how Jesus is alive in him or her?  Help them to think of real ways that this is so.

Community News 

Food Pantry for April:  As you probably have assumed, our pantry shelves are in need of replenishment.  Perhaps this Lent you could help us in this capacity.  Your generosity is always greatly appreciated.   This month our pantry shelves continue to be in need of  Canned Fruit,  Jelly,  Dessert Mixes,  Canned Pastas, and Powdered Milk . We  always need  juices.   Thank you very much for all you do for God’s people.

An Opportunity to Help your Parish and have fun all at the same time.  Our parish is in the process of reorganizing our Social Committee and we need people who can help in a variety of ways.  If you like greeting people, serving meals that have been prepared (by someone else), socializing or cooking, then the Social Committee is maybe a good place to be.  You can do it once, twice or three times a year, whatever your time allows.  The more people we have the more fun it will be and the easier it will be for everyone.  Think about it and sign up. 

A Look at Upcoming Events

Bake Sale:
  Our Group Work Camp teens who will be going to Port Jarvis in June are having a Bake Sale on the weekend of May 3, 2009.  If you would like to donate a bake item, please bring your goodies to church immediately before the Mass.  If you want to drop them off earlier, please call the rectory to make sure someone is home to receive you.  Thank you so much
