Year 2 Parent Connect - Sept. 29th
This week's Confirmation class focused on the Sacrament of Confirmation as the completion of baptismal grace and the sacrament of Christian maturity. We also went over some misconceptions candidates may have about receiving the sacrament. Our candidates took some time to look over the baptismal promises you made on their behalf when they were baptized (if they were baptized as infants). We then took time at the end of the session to prayerfully focus ourselves on the remainder of the preparation. If you have not done so already, this is a great time to check in on your candidate to ask how they are doing in the process. Offer any support you can, and take some time to pray with them in the coming weeks as they get closer to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Grace Toth-Fejel, who passed away early this morning. Please pray for strength for her husband, George and their sons Francis and Bryce.
Services will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas on Friday, October 18th. The Holy Rosary will begin at 10:30am followed by the Mass of Resurrection. A light luncheon will be served in Aquinas Center following the services.
Pray that Grace rest in the loving arms of God our Father.Read more
Please pray for Natalie Savaso, 16 year old, longtime classmate of Marlene Lattimer’s grand daughter. Natalie has dysautonomia. This is a disorder of nervous system. Her body is unable to control many systems of the body - such as breathing, body temperature, blood pressure and all the automatic functions of the body that are taken for granted.
The outlook for people with chronic progressive dysautonomia have a generally poor long-term prognosis.
Thank you for keeping Natalie in your prayers.Read more
