***OCTOBER FAMILY MASS***

Next Sunday, October 1st at the 9:30 Mass is our first Family Mass. We invite our children to serve as readers and gift bearers, and Fr. Paul will call the kids up to the altar for the homily. After Mass there will be coffee and donuts under the tent in the Rose Garden. If your child would like to do a reading or bring up the gifts, please email Matt Brady.


Catechists Needed!

As Faith Formation begins this week, we are still short on catechists.

The only requirements are love of Christ and a willingness to work with our children. No experience needed - we will train you and give you all the materials you need.

If interested, please contact Matt Brady. Directorofministries.tic@gmail.com

We especially need teachers for grades 6-8 on Wednesday and grade 9 on Sunday.

*** INTRODUCING THE KID'S SHELF

The newest addition to our Lending Library at St. John is a whole shelf of books for our young parishioners. Right now we have some books about the saints, Pope Francis and some lent things, but we hope we will be able to add to our collection.

Stop by and check it out and borrow a book! If you have any religious kids books you would like to donate, please email Matt Brady.





CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

This was our first Christmas Pageant since covid, and it was a smashing success! Thank you to all the cast and their families for all their hard work. All the kids did awesome! Special thanks to Tina Anthony for her work as our director, and to her assistants Chris Baker and Karla Berlo. And to Santa and Mrs. Claus for making the trip down from the North Pole. We had so much fun we are already planning to go bigger and better next year!




DECEMBER 4th FAMILY MASS



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.
