Faith Formation News
Last week, the Faith Formation and Confirmation students gathered to celebrate All Saints’ Day. We always start our monthly gathering with a prayer and a reading from the Bible. The students enjoy the read-aloud, and some are able to make connections with what they’re learning in their lessons!
As we always do, we broke into two groups and shared with each other what we’re learning in our on-line lessons. Then, we took some time to study the Saints and made paper ‘doll’ chains to honor some of them. Our children’s’ library in the church hall has all kinds of resources about the Saints….check them out!
After a wonderful snack donated by the Blood family, we were challenged in a “Race to be a Saint”. Father Dave was a willing (?) partner with Mrs. King as they demonstrated the different stations…each one represented a work of mercy that all of us can perform, just like the Saints did in their time.
We all had fun and learned a lot! Thanks to all the parents and family members for their support and the time they take to work with their children at home. You are always invited to join us and check out what we’re up to! Our next gathering will be Thursday, December 1 from 6:00 to 7:00…we’ll be learning about Advent. Hope to see you there!
