Important Notice  Beginning on the weekend of June 20/ 21, there will be no more 6:00pm Mass on Saturdays until mid September.  The last Saturday evening Mass will be on
June 13, 2009
.  If you want to attend a Saturday afternoon Mass, there is a 4:00 pm Mass every Saturday at St. Peter Parish in Auburn.  There is no change to the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday.

    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 2009-2010 will begin on the weekend of September 19th and 20th.  Classes are held during both weekend Masses. We would need some volunteers to help out as monitors during the classes.  Please contact the office if you can do this.

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.  All GoF classes are held on Sundays from 4 – 6 pm.  See you all next fall.

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

7th Sunday of Easter 
Theme:
(United in Christ)
Reading I: 
Acts 1: 15-17, 20-26 (Matthias is Chosen
Reading II:
1 John 4: 11-16 (Remain is Love)
Gospel:
John 17: 11-19(That They May Be One)

Question for Adults:  What words from this prayer bring me to a fuller understanding of the Eucharist? The prayer they are referring to is the prayer Jesus prayed in the Gospel, i.e. Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one. . .  Very often we go up to the Communion table and receive the Body of Christ but we forget what the meaning and purpose of the act really means.  The prayer we find in John 17:11-19 give us a good idea of the meaning of Eucharist.  Why not take some time this week to reread the prayer and to reflect on those words that stand out for you in relation to the meaning of Eucharist.

Question for Children: How can I be of service to others, following the example of Jesus?  This is a great question for discussion with children.  Service to others is one of the key factors of our faith.  It is very important that children come to a clear understanding of this part of Jesus’ teachings.  Take a little time to discuss the idea of service and brainstorm some things they can do to live it

Soles4Souls on Barefoot Sunday
    Soles4Souls is planning the 2nd annual celebration with thousands of congregations across the country. They have a simple mission – to collect new and “gently worn’ shoes to donate to victims of natural disasters and those living in extreme poverty.  One of the core groups that help transform its mission from a simple idea into a living example of God’s love is the church. Last year, hundreds of congregations across North America participated in “Barefoot Sunday,” where people left their shoes on the altar to be donated to the poor.  Barefoot Sunday is a unique opportunity for people to remove their shoes and walk out of worship services barefoot.
“Barefoot Sunday will be on June 7, 2009.
