Our dynamic and interactive youth faith formation program works with and alongside parents to equip them in fostering a true education in the faith for their children, helping them to discover their vocation as beloved sons and daughters of God. This year we are starting new monthly family faith packets. Each month the youth in our program will receive a packet with activities, stories, crafts, etc. based on a church theme.
September we learned all about prayer, why talking to God is important.
our program youth were asked to create a prayer space in their homes.
Write a family prayer to pray, enjoy using their own prayer journals.
Families were encouraged to check Father Tim's' prayer class videos from this past summer.
October was focused on some of our our faithful leaders: the Saints. We celebrated the feast of Saint Francis on October 4 by making bird feeders. To celebrate St. Rose of Lima they got to carved pumpkins. Or to celebrate our parish patron, Saint Clare every family is encouraged to attend Adoration sometime during the month of October.
November and December packets just reached the mailboxes of our families. Our November activities include making unique turkeys, acorn gratitude banners, talking about Vocations and our Diocesan safe environment program: Circle of Grace. Our December packet is focused on ADVENT, a time of preparation! Families are encouraged to attend Confession, create a Jesse Tree, read about St. Nicholas and make Christmas cookies for the neighbors! Most importantly they were asked to get ready for the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Check back soon to see some pictures of all the winter fun!
Contact Miss Betsy Brennan with any questions or to inquire more about our program. We would love to have your family join in anytime!
