CHRISTMAS PAGEANT IS BACK

We are very excited to announce that the Christmas Pageant is back this year! All children in the collaborative are invited to participate and all are welcome to attend.

The performance will be Sunday 12/18 at 12:30 in St. Ann's Parish Center. Rehearsals are Monday 12/5 and 12/12 from 5:15-6:15 and Friday 12/16 from 5-6 at St. Ann. There are speaking and non-speaking roles and costumes will be provided. If your child wants to participate, please email Matt Brady.




FAMILY MASS on Nov. 6th


Once a month on the first Sunday of the month between now and May, we will hold these special Masses at the 9:30 Mass at St. John's and we invite all families in the collaborative to attend. The kids will be able to be the readers, gift bearers and help with the collection, and Fr. Paul will invite them up to the altar for a special children's homily. There will also be coffee and donuts downstairs after Mass.

To help with the costs of this activity, we are looking for someone to sponsor the coffee and donuts. If you are interested in helping with this, please email Matt Brady.

Hope to see you there!

MATT BRADY - DIRECTOR OF MINISTRIES

"Hello everyone! My name is Matt Brady and I am very excited to be joining you as the new Director of Ministries. I have a master's degree in theology from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and an undergraduate degree from Salve Regina University. I spent the past three years at St. Denis in Westwood, where I led a revitalization of their faith formation program and family ministry and helped guide the parish through Covid.

I am looking forward to working with all of you, especially the families, to grow and strengthen our Together in Christ Collaborative."


Mission Statement

The goal of the Religious Education Program at the Together In Christ Collaborative is to bring, through catechesis and prayer, the message of Jesus Christ and His Church to all members of the community. It is its aim to help students acquire and develop their own Catholic, Christian faith, so that our parish community and its members may truly witness to the Good News of Our Lord, Jesus. All of our efforts are meant to support parents as the primary religious educators of their children. We provide formal religious education that builds upon the everyday lived experience of the faith that is shared in your homes and at Sunday Mass.

We are a welcoming Parish, with our doors open to all God's children.
