We are all back to school:

This year’s Confirmation retreat is September 15, from 4:30 PM (beginning with Mass) and concluding at 8:30 PM. There will be an opportunity for confession before the retreat is over. All who are being confirmed on September 28 are required to attend.

It is not too late to register for this Fall’s classes in religious education. The parish website has a link where you can sign up, and pay on line if you prefer. Classes begin for grades 1 through 10 in October, the schedule is on the website as well.

This is a good time for all of us to reflect on how we educate ourselves in our faith. Listening to God’s Word in the scriptures, and worshiping together at our celebration of Eucharist is the best way to enhance and develop our faith. Why not make an effort beginning this Fall to be a more regular presence each week with us, as we worship together?

So many of you already join us each week at one of our eight weekend liturgies, and we are so grateful for your presence and your support. Consider joining so many of your neighbors as we worship together, and continue to be a tangible sign of Christ’s presence for our entire community. If you want your faith to be sustained, if you want your faith to grow, we hope you will find yourself here with us each week.

God bless us all in this new Fall season.
