The parish field is much recovered. I am very grateful to Eric Reslock who worked very hard with Mike Solton to bring the grass back from the brink. There is a lot of new growth that is still quite vulnerable, however, so I would like people to continue to stay off the grass until the Pig Roast. The cones and tables will remain in place until then as a reminder.
Confirmations 2024. Registration is now open for classes for children of the parish who will be 12 years of age by June 1, 2024. Classes will begin on Sun, Sept 3, 2023. In order to register, you must have a copy of your child’s Baptism certificate. Please pick up forms in the bookstore. The deadline for turning in registration forms is Sun, Aug 27.
NB. Children enrolled in catechism classes must belong to families that are parishioners and regularly attend the parish. This is for the benefit of the enrolled children: limiting class sizes to something reasonable and also giving an opportunity for the children to make Catholic friends that will continue to be a part of their parish life during adolescence.
