BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT – Religious Education Office

22 September  2019


If you have registered your child for catechism but have NOT provided the birth and baptismal certificates, please do so at this time.  Bring them to Francesca in the Faith Formation office.


2nd year confirmation candidates need to bring in their Sponsor information to Francesca ASAP.  This information will be used for invitations to future classes as well as the ceremony itself.  Please contact Francesca at 340-0421.


ALL second year confirmation candidates are expected to attend this Saturday, 28 September from 8 am to 8 pm here at Nativity!  A retreat is MANDATORY for every candidate before they can be confirmed.  This is an Archbishop requirement and cannot be waived.  If you cannot make the 28th, please contact Fracnesca for alternatives.


Have you ever wondered how you could help someone make a real difference in their life?  Here is your opportunity!  We are organizing a team of volunteers who are 18+ years old and are willing to help build houses for low income people who can’t afford a standard mortgage.  We are looking to build a team that can support the Habitat for Humanity on perhaps, a monthly basis.  This would be a Saturday commitment.  Please contact Francesca at 340-0421 if you would like to become a part of this wonderful ministry!


Support Catholic Schools! Even with the many challenges within the Church, a Catholic School education is still the best gift you can give your children! Give them the gift of knowledge and faith!  St Therese Catholic School is the Jewel of the North Valley and is registering kids from pre-K through 8th grade for the 2019-2020 school year.  The cost of pre-K is half what many day care centers are charging, and your children receive education instead of daycare! Now is your chance to provide your children or grandchildren with a great education in a loving, Christian atmosphere.  Scholarships are available. Call 344- 4479 for a tour or to register.


St Therese will be holding their fiesta this weekend from 27-29 September behind the rectory.  The school children will be performing on Saturday at 12 noon.  There will be FREE flu shots all day SATURDAY in the gym. 


Archbishop Wester is celebrating a Mass for military, police, fire and rescue personnel.  This Mass is known as the Blue Mass and will held be at St Jude parish at 11 am on Tuesday, 24 September.  Please come to remember and celebrate the sacrifices that these men and women make for the betterment of the rest of us.
