Faith Formation from the DRE of St. Joseph’s Parish: Pauline Russell

Circle of Grace Logo

Hello!

 

We are off to a great start with Sunday Youth Faith Formation!  Thank you very much for being a part of the amazing community at St. Joseph’s.  Our program is growing and our children are fantastic!

 

There will be no Sunday School this Sunday, Oct. 21st.  There will be a Coffee Sunday on that day.  I’ve attached a calendar so that you can view future classes, and arrange your schedules.  

 

When we return on Sunday, October 28th we will be teaching the Circle of Grace.  This is the teaching of the Catholic Church which explains “we are meant to respect ourselves and everyone else as persons created and loved by God”.  “God gives each of us a Circle of Grace where He is always “present”.  The goal of Circle of Grace: “to educate and empower children and young people to actively participate in a safe environment for themselves and others”. 

 

I have attached a PDF for your reference, so that you may better understand this teaching.  Last night I attended a seminar on Circle of Grace at Holy Family Catholic Church with a few of our teachers.  We agreed that this is an excellent program for guiding our children and providing a safe and protective environment.  Please read the attachment.  It explains a great deal.  And please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions. 

 

Enjoy a beautiful weekend!  God Bless!

 

Sincerely, 

Pauline Russell
