Weekly Family Newsletter

Friday April 7, 2017


Fr. John’s Weekly School Chronicle

·         It is always great to call on kids to answer a question during the homily at Mass. One never knows what answer he will receive. But sometimes it leads to an insight into the readings that I had not previously thought about. My challenge to you as we begin Holy Week:  discuss something from the Bible with your child – ask him or her a question about the reading. Be ready to talk about the answer and don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know”.

·         My second challenge to you is attend one additional service at church this coming week. It could be the Living Stations of the Cross tonight at 7:00 or Stations next Friday night. Holy Thursday is a great time to bring kids to church. When else during the year can you bring kids to church and they can have their feet washed? Good Friday is somber, but also coming forward and touching the cross just after listening to the Passion of Jesus being read leaves a lasting impression. The Easter Vigil, which most refer to as the longest Mass of the year, holds our attention with fire, water, adults being fully immersed during their baptism, stories, darkness, and light. I hope to see you in church this coming week.

Readings for next Friday’s school Mass can be found here (April 21)
