Religious education classes for all grades will be starting next weekend Our young people are enrolled with many devoted catechists volunteering their time and talent to help form future generations of believers. I want to express my profound appreciation to these parishioners for giving up their time and devoting their energy teaching the young. Our Lord warned adults not to prevent the children from coming to Him, for such as these does the Kingdom of God belong. Parents are, above all, the first and most important teachers of religion and we who teach and preach can only build on the foundation provided by parents. In addition to bringing their children to religion classes, parents are encouraged to attend Sunday Mass with their children; for the faith to be experienced it must be enlivened spiritually with the grace of the Sacraments, especially the sharing of God’s Word and His Body and Blood, gifts given to us at each and every Mass. It is the house, that is, the life, built on the solid rock of faith rather than the shifting sands of ease and comfort that sustains in time of trial and difficulty; that trials and difficulties come is without question—that we can be sustained in the face of these depends on how well we have built, have practiced, have nurtured our faith, particularly with the living Body and Blood of Christ, the Eucharist, each and every Sunday. Faith is living and dynamic: if not fed, it grows weak; if not practiced, it grows rusty; if not shared, it grows cold; if not lived, it dies. Schedules for all the classes are located at the front entrance of the Church Grade K – 5: meets on Sunday mornings from 8:45 – 9:50AM The Religious Education Mass for Grades K–5 is on Sept. 11th, at 8:00AM. Soon after the Mass the parents will remain in the church for a meeting. For First Communion students, weekly Mass is mandatory and there will be sign-in sheets for students at the entrance of the Church. Grades 6 - 8: meets Monday Evenings from 6:30 – 7:30PM. Your class begins on September 12th, 2016 in the basement of the Church. Grades 9 – 10: meets Sunday following the 10:15 AM Mass The Confirmation students Mass will be held on September 11th, at 10:15AM. For confirmation students, weekly Mass is mandatory.

Car Show and Craft Fair October 9, 2016
This is a family day for our parish. There is no cost to view the wonderful cars of past generations, enjoy great food and browse our craft fair. You can help, we are asking everyone who attends to bring a can good for our food pantry. If you are a business person please ask how a small donation from you can go a long way to stock our pantry and enhance your standing in our community. As a parishioner who would like to memorialize someone who took you for long Sunday rides, to the Drive-In, or just loved old cars you can purchase a set of trophies engraved with your loved ones name and then you can select and present the trophies to the winners. This would also make a great gift for your children or grandchildren. Watch their faces light up when they are presented their own personalized trophy.
