Several months ago, Pope Benedict XVI released Porta Fidei, an apostolic letter proclaiming the Year of Faith, which will begin on October 11, 2012. The document says that this year “is intended to contribute to a renewed conversion to the Lord Jesus and to the rediscovery of faith, so that the members of the Church will be credible and joy-filled witnesses to the Risen Lord, capable of leading those many people who are seeking it, to the door of faith.” In this spirit, our annual summer children’s retreat will focus on those earliest joy-filled witnesses to the Risen Lord – the Apostles! Mark your calendars for this day of crafts, games, videos and other faith-filled fun centered around these “superheroes” of the faith!
This retreat, for children ages 4 through 11, will take place in the Parish Hall on Saturday, July 28th from 11:00 until 4:00 and will include a child-friendly lunch. Registration forms can be picked up in the back of church or you can call the Rectory (582-2827) to register your children for this day of fun and faith!
