Our Faith Formation Program got off to a great start on September 20th with 2 important events. Many families joined us for our Catechetical Sunday Mass as we blessed and commissioned our teachers. Following the Mass, our Faith Formation Families participated in our safe “Drive Up Disciples” event.
Our First Playlist for September/October with the theme “Fall in Love with Jesus” is now available under the Faith Formation tab on our Parish website: http://www.smceastwindsor.org Each month, there will be a new playlist posted showing us many ways that we can Learn about Jesus, Live like Jesus taught us, and Love like Jesus.
Now, with their Gospel weeklies and their Playlist, our students and families have all they need to begin the home study portion of our program. Students should be referring to the Playlist at least weekly, which includes reading and following their Gospel weeklies program on a week by week basis. Also on the Playlist, and crucial to this year’s program is that families make time to attend Mass together at least once every month.
Sunday, October 4th 10am – Our first Zoom class for all Faith Formation Students which means Grade 1 through Confirmation prep. Invitations with links will be sent to the emails we have on file for each family and student. Our practice will be to keep parents informed of all activities, even if they have provided a separate email for their child(ren).
