“Things what we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.. We will not hide them from their children, but tell the coming generation, the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders he has wrought”. (Psalms 78:3-4).
In response to the Archdiocese plea for mission-related needs and responding to God’s calling to be stewards, St. John grades preschool-eighth-grade will be implementing Archdiocese One as a mission project. Each week of faith formation the children/youth will have an opportunity to help fill up the collecting container with “pennies to pocket change.” No amount is too small. Every penny will help secure the future for Priest Retirement, Seminarian Education, Cathedral of St. Raphael Church and Campus repairs and Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services.
Our children and youth, from preschool to eighth-grade will be adding two new prayers to their prayer repertoire this year, the Memorare and the Angelus.
Please keep our twenty-three second-graders in your prayers, as they, under the leadership of their families, prepare together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation that will take place February 29, 2020.
