Science without Religion is lame.  Religion without Science is blind.
~ Einstein

Confirmation Mass will be celebrated in May.  In the meantime, we'll look at Church history and the relationship between the Church and the secular world.  We'll also reflect on the miracle and the challenge of being formed, gifted, and called to help bring forth God's kingdom today. 
Class Announcements
  • Car Chat
    Riding in the car together is a great time for parents and teenagers to talk about important things.  Try this one!

    We sometimes ask saints to intercede for us in time of need: to take our prayers to God the Father for us.  When you were a teenager, who did you ask to intercede for you?  Did you ever ask your dad to talk to a coach for you?  Or your mom to talk to your dad?  Talk with your child about what it means to intercede for someone you love.

  • Extra Credit Opportunity

    Hola!  Would you like a new worship experience?  Extra credit?  Here's how!
    Attend a Bi-lingual Mass, or a Mass said in a language that is not English.  Bring me a bulletin from that church with your parents' signature and a brief (4 sentence) description of what was the same & different about that Mass from the one you usually attend.  Here are some Mass times if you're interested:
    Christ the King, Spanish Mass, Sunday at noon
    St. Thomas the Apostle, Bilingual Spanish/English Mass, 1st & 3rd Sun 11:30am
    St. James the Less, Spanish Mass Sat 6:00, Sun 9:30 & 12:30 
    St. Matthias, Brazilian Portuguese Mass, Sunday 7:00pm

  • Confirmation Saint Names

    You may choose any person who is venerable, blessed, or sainted.  You may choose a saint who has the same name as you, or your sponsor.  Consider looking at the saint whose feast day is your birthday, or who is the patron saint of something you love to do!

    Saintbook projects are due 1/29.
