Hello Families,

Today we give thanks for our second graders who received Jesus for the first time at the 11 am Mass with their families; Benjamin Bauer, Kenneth Gonthier, Oliver Grisius, Bradley Hatch, Hailee Miller, Maverick Murray, Sadie Nichols, Samuel Whitefoot, and Jace York. We pray that the gift of the Eucharist will draw them into the unending friendship with the Lord. Congratulations!

Take Time to Chat – In today’s Gospel, Jesus says, “As the Father loves me, so I also love you.” Jesus does love you! Do you believe that? Why or why not? Jesus encourages us to keep his commandments. Is it hard or easy to keep God’s commandments? Explain your answer.

Liturgy Link – After the 1st and 2nd readings, we say “Thanks be to God.” After the Gospel, the priest says, “The Gospel of the Lord.” How do we respond?

Family Prayer – Prayer for Friends – In today’s Gospel, Jesus calls us friends. Offer this prayer for the friends in your life. Lord, please help us to know your friendship in and through the people in our lives. Thank you for blessing us with friends who love us, share our sorrows, laugh with us, encourage us, stand by us in times of need. Bless our friends with health, wholeness, life, and love. We pray especially for (have each person who would like name a situation, particular friend, or relationship for which they would like to pray). Amen

Family Challenge – In today’s Gospel, Jesus commands us to love one another. Try to be the MOST loving person in your family this week. Invite your family to vote on who was the most loving at the end of the week.

Partners in Faith,
Phyllis Chudzinski
