Seasons of Faith and Service Part 1: Early Childhood Education

Introducing a faith formation and volunteering opportunity each week, we are kicking it off with Early Childhood Education, our program for kids 3 years old through kindergarten. With those little ones, it is all about having fun, interactive activities in which they learn and experience Jesus’ love for us. Through crafts, music and movement, they can be together in this once-a-month program. Volunteers serving in Early Childhood Education enjoy playing, crafting and singing with kids while helping them to know more about God’s love.  A good starting point for families is through MOMs of St. Monica will be gathering In Person for a summertime playgroup on the following Saturdays: July 9 & July 23, Aug 13 & Aug 27 from 10am-12pm. All MOMs are welcome!  Bring your children, snacks and meet us at the Play Structure on the Schoolyard.  Contact for more information.

Vacation Bible School was Monumental!

We went on an “off road” adventure through colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest.  We explored God’s awesomeness and the depth of His love for each of us and together formed a “rock-solid" faith! This is what we learned:

“God loves me no matter what!”   “God is everywhere!”   "God is in charge!”   
"God is stronger than anything!”
and “God is surprising!” 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

We will be in-person this week during the 9:30 a.m. Mass - thank you Erin, Michael, and Amelie, for sharing your faith with our families this weekend ONLINE!

Faith Formation Age 3-Grade 8

image00014Living Faith...VBS, taking the lessons out into the world!

In today’s Gospel, Jesus talks about what it means to be his follower. Jesus tells the disciples that following him means making the choice to put him first, above all else. Following Jesus means making God the center of our lives. When we have a choice to make, how do you choose to put Jesus first, even when it’s hard. What action do we take in your heart and mind to put Jesus first and be a good disciple?

 

A few ideas and questions to consider from Our Sunday Visitor:

  • Prayer helps us to hear God’s whispering words of love, encouragement and Jesus’ invitation to follow him. As a family, talk about those things that get in the way of taking time out for prayer each day.
  • Ask each member of the family what they would like to be when they are older and why that particular field interests them. Talk about college or other training they will need to accomplish their goal and what they can start doing now as the first steps toward that goal. Talk about how prayer will play a role in their choices.
  • Talk about how going to Sunday Mass as a family is an important way of keeping God at the center of our lives. Talk about other ways that the family can make Jesus a priority.
  • By virtue of our Baptism, we are called to be followers of Jesus. Have the family recall events from the past year that reminded each of you of your baptismal call to follow Jesus. As a family, evaluate how you did during that event and what you could have done differently to show your commitment to following Jesus.
  • Jesus freely offered his life to show us his love for God and us. Have a family discussion about what you are willing to do this week to show Jesus you love him.
