Dear 11th Grade Class,


I first want to let you know that if you or your chosen sponsor did not attend the Sponsor meeting, I have re-scheduled a make up meeting, so that both you and your sponsor has the materials for do the Faith Sharing at home. This meeting is set for SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28, FROM 10:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. We encourage you to come with your sponsor to the 9:00 a.m. Mass and just come to the Church hall immediately after for the Sponsor Candidate meeting.



A reminder that we will have our Lenten Penance Service on Sunday, February 28 at 5:00 p.m. Sponsors are encouraged to attend the Penance Service with their Candidate.



Our Confirmation Retreat is se for Saturday, March 20 from 8:30 – 2:30 p.m. Please remember to clear you work schedules etc. to have this time free. The confirmation retreat I designated as a must before receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. Please mark your calendars. A bus for transportation will be provided.


READ YOUR BOOK – Rediscovering Jesus

Since we have missed so many classes, I continue to remind you to read the book Rediscovering Jesus, which I gave you at the January 17th Class. If you did not receive your book yet, please contact me and I will make arrangement to get it to you.


If you have missed several sessions of Religious Education, please remember that I prepared folders for you to do your classes at home. They were left in the vestibule of the Church. If you did not yet pick yours up, please do so as soon as possible so that you can keep up with your classes.


Thank you for your kind attention to the announcements above.

God Bless you,

Sr. Linda

ARISE SMALL FAITH SHARING GROUPS will once again be established for Season Five of Arise, but not during the Lenten Season.  Small Faith Sharing Group will meet during the Easter Season beginning the weeks of April 11, 18, 25, May 2, May 9 and May 16.  We will have Sign up during the First and Second weeks of Lent to allow us sufficient time to order materials. 

WE ARE SEEKING SMALL GROUP LEADERS If you would like to volunteer for this ministry, please contact Sr. Linda as soon as possible to set you day of the week and the time so that sign up sheets can be prepared for sign up during the Lenten Season.  

Doing our Small Groups during the Easter Season allows us to have more time for people to get their vaccine and to hopefully secure the safety of participants.  

We will celebrate the Closing of Arise Together in Christ at an Outdoor Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Alleghenies at 7:00 p.m. on June 6.  Please mark this date on your calendars and plan to attend.  Also, please pray for good weather.
