New Academic Year for Faith Formation

Greetings

This Sunday after the 10am Mass, please join Ms. Paula King, Ms. Annie Anderson, and all the children with their families to celebrate the beginning of the new academic year and to dedicate a nice water fountain given in the name of the children as a gift to the parish’s garden. The kids worked hard last year selling baked goods to fund their field trip, and with the remainder, they donated this new water fountain. This new academic year is going to be an exciting year, because, most of the kids will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Bishop Libasci has changed the age of reception of Confirmation to the 3rd Grade in order to “restore, renew and proclaim” the Good News of Jesus Christ. Please pray for the children, their families and the teachers/coordinator of the Religious Ed. program here at St. Joseph’s.

Bishop Robert Barron’s “Pivotal Players” video series presentation on six inspirational Catholic thinkers, who influenced the Church greatly, will be shown here at the parish on Tuesdays & Thursdays. The date isn’t set yet, but stay tuned, I will announce it on weekend Mass announcements. I do want to show a preview “trailer” that highlights this wonderful production and terrific insights from Bishop Barron. I believe it would benefit everyone to watch it!

If you or someone you know, would like to become Catholic, or needs to receive a Sacrament that they are missing, or would simply enjoy learning more about their Catholic Faith, please let me know, the sooner the better. I can discuss with you some options and am willing to work with your schedule. Please e-mail or call the office.

Please check out “the Mountain” located inside the church near the poor box, to see our parish’s Capital Campaign progress. Our little boots are climbing!

I’m happy Autumn is only a week away, but saddened that the clocks will not turn back an hour until November…blah! Haha…

May God continue to bless us and our little church here in the White Mountains!
Fr. Kneeland
