Welcome to the 2017-2018 faith formation year! I am Carol Hunt and am happy to be teaching your 1st grader! This is my second year teaching faith formation. Although you are the primary educator of your child’s faith, I am excited to grow in Jesus amazing love for us, and knowledge of our Catholic faith together. Christ's love cannot be taught, it can only be shared by example. We will be using the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies called “Promise”. This lesson is built around the theme of the Sunday Gospel, so Jesus’ story forms the heart of each lesson. This “newspaper” will come home each week and I encourage you to do the family corner activity and prayer together. We will also work out of a handbook called “What the Church Believes and Teaches” this book stays in the classroom and comes home with your child at the end of the year. Faith formation is not only for children, it is a lifelong process. Peace!
October Class Notes: On 10-11 I was extremely sick with bronchitis, I called Wendi to let her know I would not be available to teach class , but unfortunately I called her cell phone which she did not have with her that day, so she did not get my message. I’m sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
I am looking forward to class tomorrow, our lesson will be “We belong to God” . This message teaches us that God calls us to obey both civil and religious laws. I urge you to talk to your children (and consider yourself) how we show God that we belong to him. Lets extend this by asking ourselves how we show others that we belong to God.
I truly enjoy teaching your little ones! Thank you, Peace, Carol Hunt
