Elementary Faith Formation
December 6th Class
The season of Advent provides many opportunities for us to prepare for the coming of Jesus at Christmas!
This Friday is a holy day of obligation. We celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception where Mary is conceived without the stain of Original Sin. Masses are at 9:00 am and 6:30 pm.
Our Advent Parish Reconciliation Service is next Wednesday, December 13th, at 6:30 pm in the Church. Please plan on joining us after you drop off your child at Faith Formation class.
On December 20th, our final class before Christmas break, the children will be having a Christmas party. The students will be making Christmas decorations for the residents at Minnetonka Shores Nursing Home to brighten their holidays. They will also be assembling the birthday bags for the Westonka Food Shelf. If you'd like to contribute, please indicate what you'll be bringing on the following link:
Parents are invited to join us in the school cafeteria on Dec. 20th at 7:30 pm to enjoy Christmas goodies and fellowship. If you're able to donate cookies or bars for the event, please let me know.
Here are the topics we will be discussing this week in Chapter 8:
Grade 1: Jesus taught us that God wants to know our needs.
Grade 2: Jesus calls us to the Kingdom of God.
Grade 3: Jesus invites his followers to enter the Kingdom of God.
Grade 4: Jesus redeemed us from our sins through his life, Death & Resurrection.
Grade 5: In Baptism, we enter into life in Christ.
Wishing you and your family a blessed Advent!
