RE logos STJ


This weekend, April 24 is OUR LAST CLASS for the year. What an awesome, busy, emotional, fast-paced year this has been! In the weeks ahead I will send out a detailed evaluation from this year, using much of your feedback, input and suggestions. We will also soon announce some summer opportunities to regather the kids on a few Sundays; a day or more of Vacation Bible School; summer service projects for older students; and something I am very excited about: the adults who have been meeting ASKED TO CONTINUE over the summer with some sort of an adult Sunday “Summer School!” Plans are in the works and we will let you know soon!!

The regional Confirmation Retreat last weekend was… well… How do we describe it? We had an extraordinary weekend; the Holy Spirit moved in a tremendous way! It was really quite amazing. To see some of the student’s comments, take a look at the article we have posted:

Please pray next weekend for the First Communicants… First Eucharist Practice: Thursday evening April 28, 5:30 at St. Joseph or 6:30 at St. John. First Eucharist Masses will be held Saturday, April 30, 4:00 at St. Joseph or Sunday, May 1, 2:00 at St. John.

Please be sure to thank the amazing catechists and aids that have made this year so enriching; most especially a thank you goes to Ann Marie Raehtz who got everything started and/or closed down for these last few months on Sunday mornings. Whew!

Thank you for making religious education a priority for your family!
