We are eagerly anticipating a special Faith Formation session on the First Sunday of Advent, December 1st at 10:30 am! This session is open to all children, teens, and parents whether your family is registered for Faith Formation or not. While children are in class, Mrs. Mowry will meet with the parents in the Sanctuary to introduce some Advent traditions and ways to live this liturgical season out within the home. Middle school and high school youth will meet in the Gathering Area. At 11 am, everyone will gather in the Multipurpose room, and families will make their own Advent wreaths together! Fr. Bob will bless all the Advent wreaths at 11:20 am, and then families may attend Mass or head home for the day. If you already have an Advent wreath at home, please feel free to bring it with you to spruce it up and/or have it blessed. Please note that if you child is enrolled in another Faith Formation class time (i.e. Wednesdays at 5:30 pm), there is no need for him or her to attend the class at 10:30 am — your family may join us for our Advent wreath making and blessing at 11 am!
Please complete the registration form so we can joyfully prepare for you and your family! (scroll down)
