For Week Beginning January 8
To all parents I just wanted to thank you for your generosity this Christmas! What a wonderful Christmas break this was. I hope yours was as well. We celebrated St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's feast day with a special reflection prayer that she wrote over a hundred years ago! Isn't our Church amazing in that we can unite with the Saints in prayer! It IS great to be Catholic! Here's what's happening for the week (maybe...depending on the weather.)
The Epiphany Blessing will be done this year by Fr. Chris on Thursday, Jan 11th. Please read about this wonderful blessing and consider blessing your own doorway and house this year! https://epicpew.com/chalk-epiphany-blessing/
