BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT – Religious Education Office

25 October 2020

ALL SOULS/ALL SAINTS: As part of our celebration of families, we will be displaying pictures of your loved ones who have died on the back altar of the church.  You may bring them in two different ways this year.  Bring your framed photos to Mass and place them on the table near the doors.  We will take them into the sanctuary for display.  If you are not yet attending Mass you may bring them by the parish office any time during the week.  There will be a table in the entrance for you to place your photo upon.  We will then take them over to the Church for display.  We will be praying for all of your loved ones throughout the month of November.

HALLOWEEN: Due to our latest restrictions from the governor, we WILL NOT celebrate Halloween during catechism.  Please do not send any goodies to class with your children.  Thank you.

VIRTUS TRAINING: We’re conducting a review of all of our parishioners’ adult abuse awareness training.  Please ensure your training is up to date.  If you would like to take the training online, please go to https://www.virtusonline.org , complete the training and send your certificate to Deacon Michael.DISTANCE

DISTANCE LEARNING:  Online kids please remember to log on to your class at the appointed time.  If you don’t know what time your class meets, please contact Francesca at 340-0421.  Parents, please make sure that your child is not logging on in a closed bedroom or other private place.  For your children’s protection and ours, you need to be monitoring your kids during their class.  Also, please make sure that your child is enabling their camera during class.  The teacher needs to see them and engage with them.

Padres, asegúrese de que su hijo no se conecte en un dormitorio cerrado u otro lugar privado. Para la protección de sus hijos y la nuestra, debe vigilar a sus hijos durante su clase. Además, asegúrese de que su hijo esté habilitando su cámara durante la clase. El maestro necesita verlos e interactuar con ellos.

CONFESSIONS: Individual confessions are at 3 pm on Saturdays. Father will meet you at the center window of the Church sacristy as you drive up.  Simply open your driver window and come to reconciliation! He also has confessions by appointment from 9-12 and from 1–3 each weekday.  Please call 340-0420 if you need an appointment.
