Together in Christ October Family Newsletter 2009
Change!!!
God authors change. Look around! It’s about brilliant colors and letting go.
Life is about change. Look within. It’s about living, loving and learning.
Reconciliation invites change. Look deeply! It’s about less stress and inner peace.
Eucharist remembers change. Look into your heart! Jesus died and rose again for all to live.
Celebrate change. Look to your faith! Turn to the Lord and discover the joy of knowing Him.
God calls us to change. Look around, look within, look deeply into your heart and believe that change will happen when our hearts are one with Him.

All is Well at Last: Our opening sessions have gone very well and the enthusiasm and positive attitudes are filling the air. We are very excited about our Faith Formation Program. All catechists from Grades K-6 gathered for an orientation and are focused on assisting you and your child to develop a strong relationship with the Lord and with His Church. Our Middle School Faith Formation Program is taking the shape of a Retreat model. We will be meeting on a monthly basis meeting on Sundays from 4-7pm... This is a very exciting time for our young adolescents. We have an inspiring team of catechists and high school peer ministers.
FYI the computer glitch has been resolved, so we should all be on the same page for class lists. Our theme is commitment... commitment to the Eucharist and one another.
Happenings in October:
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16
October 17, 2009: Winter Outer Wear Collection for St. Michael’s Church
Please bring clean and mended winter outer wear clothes for both adults and children. We will be collecting the clothes on Saturday, October 17th at the Emerson-Williams School cafeteria. Parish family home catechists can also leave them in the hall before October 22nd. There will be a section designated for the clothes. Volunteers are needed to transport the clothes to the church hall from Emerson-Williams School. Thank you.
October 24, 2009 Parent Meeting for Reconciliation 2010
This is a very important gathering for all parents whose child is on the journey to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. The ideal situation is to have each child represented by a parent. There is a great deal of information to be given out and discussed to enter into the formation process of preparing your child for the sacrament experience. If you cannot attend, please call the Formation office at 529-6765. Parents are asked not to pick up materials for other families.

Coach Jack McKeon once said “Your attitude determines your altitude.” Let us have high hopes that this year will be a blessing and a wonderful experience for all. Thank you for your support and your spirit of cooperation.
