FAITH FORMATION k-5 FOOD DRIVE
Let's make this last month of classes be of service to those in need. The Works of Mercy tells us to feed the hungry and that is what we need to do. St. Mary of the Expectation Parish hands out food to hundreds of families who need a little help feeding their families. We can help by bringing in food for the Food Pantry. Any non-perishable food in boxes or cans will do and also baby items such as baby food or diapers. Let's be generous as Jesus teaches us to be to our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
FAITH FORMATION CLASSES K-5
Sunday classes meet at 9:00 a.m. (Early Birds)
and 10:45 a.m. (Late Sleepers)
This enables Early Birds to leave class at 10:00 a.m. just in time for the 10:15 Mass and Late Sleepers to leave class at 11:45 a.m., just in time for the noon Mass. We strongly encourage all of our Faith Formation children to attend weekend Mass with their families. The Eucharistic Liturgy (Mass) is the heart and soul of our Catholic Faith. How can we miss Mass and thus, miss receiving Jesus into our bodies to give us the nourishment we need to live our lives as Christians?
ENTRANCES FOR FAITH FORMATION K-5
Sunday: Enter on the south side of the school which is the main front door.
Wednesday: Enter on the east side of the school where there is plenty of parking.
The Walker St. entrance is only for Catechists.
Please respect this: Catechists dedicate every Sunday to passing on the faith of our church to the young children. They deserve a place to park close to the office where they sign in and pick up their supplies for the classes.
Thanks to all who brought in their palms from last year. The children in the Sunday K-5 program burned the old palms to make ashes for use on Ash Wednesday. Then the children in the Wednesday program were marked with those same ashes from the burned palms. It was a great experience for the children to make the connection between the palms of Palm Sunday and the ashes of Ash Wednesday. Now we are ready to be good disciples of Christ all during this Lenten season.
