Please join us for our Annual Meeting in the Parish Hall at 9:30 AM on February 4th. Tacos, coffee and juice will be provided. We will celebrate the past year together as we look towards what the future brings!
We will be holding First Communion classes beginning January 21 during the 10:45 AM worship service! All baptized students in the 1st-5th grades are invited to attend this 5 week class series! The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 3), We Celebrate (Lesson 4) and We are Sent Out (Lesson 5). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.
The classes will be led by Happy Wilson in Ms. Urbanowski’s room (Middle School building next door to the Sacred Studies room) during the 10:45 AM worship service on the following Sundays: Jan. 21, Jan. 28, Feb. 4, Feb. 18, Feb. 25. Fr. Ram will lead lesson 4, We Celebrate, on Feb. 18 after the 10:45 AM worship service. The First Communion service will take place on Sunday, May 20th.
The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
January 21: We Gather
January 28: We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God
February 4: We Offer our Gifts
February 18: (class will be held after 10:45 service): We Celebrate
February 25: We are Sent Out
May 20th: First Communion
You may register your child for the First Communion classes by contacting Happy Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Council Delegates and Alternates Needed
On Sunday, January 21, we will cast ballots to elect 3 delegates and 1 alternate to serve at the Annual Council of the Diocese of West Texas in San Marcos, Texas on February 22-24, 2018.
We will be electing 2 people of three year terms and one for a special one year term. We also need one alternate delegate.

Delegates the first alternate will have their registration fee (which includes Friday luncheon and Friday evening council banquet) paid by the Church. All other expenses will be borne by delegates/alternates.
