News from Our DRE, Sonya Morris:Classes Resume Dec.2

As our liturgical year comes to an end, we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King on Sunday, November 22.

We call to mind what we have been learning in faith formation this year about prayer. Have we become complacent in our spiritual lives and in our family’s spiritual lives?  We must not!  We need to work hard every day, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to draw ourselves and our families closer to Jesus Christ. 

We acknowledge the kingship of Christ by dedicating ourselves to prayer and to the building up of our families and parish community.  Look for opportunities to volunteer. Even during these turbulent times there are opportunities to donate (the Giving Tree is one example), to volunteer (St. Francis Commission is still involved in helping the Union Gospel Mission) and to pray for others. (St. John’s & St Joseph’s have a prayer chain).  Help build up the kingdom of God and your parish community by taking part in these or other worthwhile endeavors.

There are no faith formation classes during Thanksgiving week. Classes will resume on Wednesday, December 2, with our K-5 classes.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

God Bless,
Sonya Morris



Our next faith formation class is Wednesday, November 11th. Middle and high school students will be meeting at St. John’s and the Cathedral from 7 pm – 8:30 pm where they will have a chance to connect with their friends and community.

As we move into the month of November we focus on thanksgiving. We remember that all of our prayers should start with thanking the most important person in our lives, our Lord Jesus Christ.

We continue to thank Him for all the wonderful things He has blessed us with and offer him our prayers of thanksgiving.

Our next faith formation class is Wednesday, November 11th. Middle and high school students will be meeting at St. John’s and the Cathedral from 7 pm – 8:30 pm where they will have a chance to connect with their friends and community.

If you or someone you know still needs to register please feel free to contact me.

Have a blessed week.

In Christ,

Sonya Morris

Our next class is Wednesday, October 28th, for our middle and high school students. Everyone will be meeting at the Cathedral in the church space from 7-8:30. Our special guest speaker, Sr. Lisa Maurer, will be giving an inspirational talk to kick off our year of prayer.

We have successfully started all of our faith formation programs. God has blessed us with many things this year, and more students than we could have hoped for during these uncertain times have registered for our classes.

Please continue to pray for us and pass along the message to anyone who may want to participate in our program.

We are offering an online option to those who are not comfortable coming in person. We will have live stream videos of our classes and some at home activities that will help our young people in their prayer life now and hopefully forever.
