This is the Week that Changed the World.
In these days of Holy Week, let us remember the words of Pope Saint John XXIII: “Everything children see in church during Holy Week speaks to their imagination and their senses. You must take them with you, and explain everything clearly.”
Bring your whole family to the liturgies of Triduum and Easter. You won't be disappointed!

Our goal as catechists is to create sparks in our children that will grow into a life-long relationship with Jesus. For our last “Faith Night Out” for this year, we are honored to have Pat Heller speak on this topic. Pat was the DRE for St. Joseph’s Parish in Shelton for over 25 years and certainly has great insights to share with us. Drinks and snacks will be served. Guests most welcome!
