December RE News

It is hard to believe, but the Advent  is here and Christmas is quickly approaching. The first 3 months of Religious Education have exceeded my expectations. The classes are doing wonderful, teachers and helpers are amazing, and overall attendance for 1st-12th grade for Oct & Nov is 91% attendance! This is fantastic, and I am extremely impressed with the  attendance each week! We are now entering into the season of Advent, but also the season of colds and flu. If you know your child(ren) will be gone one week from RE, please give the office a call.  We will continue Wednesday RE and Sunday School until Dec 24, and resume as usual starting January 7th for Sunday School, and January 10th for Wednesday RE classes.

Sunday School Concert + RE Coffee & Rolls

Our PreK-Kindergarten Sunday School will be presenting a Christmas Concert for all to attend, on Sunday December 17th at 8:45am in Rademacher Hall. Mass is at 9:30am, and there will be Coffee & Christmas Cookies following Mass. All are invited to attend! After the 9:30am Mass, we will be hosting Coffee, Christmas cookies, & Rolls. If you are doing some holiday baking and would like to make a few extra for that weekend, please let me know. All the proceeds will go towards the Religious Education program. Below is the schedule for the rest of the 2017 year.

 Share the Spirit

As a Church & RE program, we are sponsoring 2 families for Share the Spirit. The needs of the families are on the bright yellow angels on the tree in the gathering space of Church, and the food list is at the bottom of this post. You can bring in or send items/food to the office, or next week to RE on Wednesday. If you would rather a cash donation, even a dollar or two, we will use it to buy the items not donated by the end of the collection on December 13th.
