News from the Group Work Camp.
    We did very well on our car wash.  We were able to raise $452.00 last Saturday.  Thank to Sandy’s Variety we had a great showing.  The weather was great, and we had lots of participation from our groups.  Thank you. 
    We are scheduled to have a bake sale this weekend so if you don’t have your wallet with you but you would like to make a contribution feel free to put it in the basket next week.  Thank you so much.  We appreciate all your help

    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

Trinity Sunday  
(Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
Reading I: 
Deut. 4: 32-34, 39-40 (There is no Other)
Reading II:
Romans 8: 14-17 (A Spirit of Adoption)
Matt.  28: 16- 20 (I Am With you Always)

Question for Adults:  When will I take the time to pause and clearly ask the Lord what he wants me to do? Asking God what he wants us to do is often a scary thing.  We are afraid that he will ask something we don’t want to do or at least are worried we can’t do.  Another factor that comes into play in this scenario is that we actually have to listen to the answer God gives.  We ay be asking but we forget to listen for the answer.  We are so used to listening for noise that we can easily miss a response from the God of Peace.  If you think you are up to it, why not ask him what he wants of you.  You may even like the answer, who knows?

Question for Children: How is God asking me to help someone in my family or school?)   
 Listening to God is always difficult even for adults but children have more difficulty because they think in a concrete manner.  They think that they should be hearing God’s voice in a literal manner.  Take some time this week to talk to your child about “listening” to God through their hearts.  This will take a little time for them but it is very important.
