Reflections

From The Office of Faith Formation

Jan. 6 - 7, 2018

As the New Year begins, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge our Faith Formation Ministries and those who work in them. I would like first to recognize Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Each Sunday, children are dismissed and given an opportunity to break upon the Word of God at their own level; thus giving parents a chance to fully experience the Liturgy of the Word and Homily. Children are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass. Children’s Liturgy of the Word also affords Catechists an opportunity to use their own special talents and gifts to enhance the learning experience of the children. These gifts include reading, storytelling, art, projects and music. Each week is different with children of all ages participating. My sincere appreciation goes out to our Catechists: Anabella Lolohea, Chris Lang, Faith Jacobs, Tammy Nguyen and Lydia Reno. May God bless and strengthen them as they continue in this very important ministry.
