Christian Education Commission Minutes, March, 2016
EDUCATION COMMISSION REPORT – RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
Monday night classes have been very busy this Lent. Our group is raising money to sponsor education workshops for A Vision for Clean Water. Our goal was to sponsor two workshops but I feel we will exceed that. Families have been very generous and children very excited about helping others.
We invited families to our Stations of the Cross prayer service on March 7th. Children were very attentive as their teachers gave reflections for each Station. I think they all gained a greater appreciation for the journey.
7th and 8th graders are attending a session of Come, Encounter Christ on Monday, March 14 at St. Hugo from 7-8:30PM. Those not able to attend will have class, per usual.
First Eucharist parents met on March 3rd and received materials to prepare their students for First Eucharist. Our next meeting for parents and students will be Thursday, April 14 at 7PM. Students will be making their First Eucharist plates.
Many students will be attending or helping at Good Friday Bible School on March 25 from 12 to 3PM. . The students attending will be able to participate in the Veneration of the Cross and receive Communion - if of age.
Classes will be out of session on March 20th as the parish is holding a Communal Penance Service that evening. We will be meeting on Monday, March 28.
Our Sunday pre-school program during 9:30AM and 11AM Masses continues to grow. Students age 3-6 are invited to attend on Sundays when we are in session. Thanks to special teaching teams – Karen Crile, assisted by Phyllis Gorski at 9:30 and Joy and Beth Clouse at 11.
No pre-school on Easter Sunday or April 3rd.
