Greetings and happy Autumn! I hope many of you were able to enjoy the parish picnic last week. In today's eNews, you'll find a few updates/reminders from the Open House and schedule notes. I received a lot of questions regarding the schedule - wherever you see "E" that means there's class for elementary students.  M = Middle school and H = High school. If they're on the calendar, that means there's class, unless we've told you otherwise. Also, just a reminder that our Parish Nursery is open this Sunday during the 9am and 11am Masses. At the end of each eNews, we'll have a FORMED feature - I'll highlight different videos that tie in with the Church's calendar or tie in with your child's lesson.
Peace, Jenna Ripp
2016-2017 Schedule
Recap and Some Updates from the Open House
  • Parent Role - Please help reinforce what we do at RE by showing interest in your child's classes and taking them to Mass.  This will help them build a life immersed in the faith.
  • Logistics - Please come to your child's class to drop them off/pick them up, NOT THE PARKING LOT.  Books/folder should come back and forth each week so you can do the "With my Family" Sections.
  • Catechists - We're still in need of Catechists. We'd love to have THREE MORE!  Please contact me with questions, concerns or if you're interested in volunteering to help pass the faith along to our children!

And October 2 is the feast day of the Guardian Angels. Check out the book Angels & Demons: What do we know about them? or YDisciple Hot Topic series, sessions 4 and 5.
