Our Faith Formation classes begin on Wednesday September 21st with a prayer service, catechist introduction followed by a parent meeting. There should be at least one parent in attendance. Registration forms are available in the back of church or on our parish website. Please invite anyone you know to our Faith Formation classes. We look forward to seeing you and partnering with you and your children on their faith journey. See you in Church!
Genuflecting as we enter or leave the pew is a way to acknowledge that Jesus is present in the form of the Blessed Sacrament. By kneeling, we signal with our whole person that we love and serve Jesus. It’s a sign of respect, showing that we know why we are here: to worship God.
Our “domestic churches” should also reflect the postures and rituals common to the life of the Church. The Catechism, in teaching on the importance of signs and symbols, states: “As a social being, man needs signs and symbols to communicate with others, through language, gestures, and actions. The same holds true for his relationship with God” (No. 1146). By making use of different postures for prayer at home, we are reiterating their significance and allowing them to shape and form us as the Body of Christ. Practice genuflecting, folding hands and kneeling at home so you’re ready for Mass!
