This Sunday we pray with Psalm 146 which reminds us of what the Lord can and will do in our lives: frees, gives sight, raises up, loves, protects, sustains…. Isn’t this what we want for our children? That is why we hand on the faith to our children. Because within the faith is a person: Jesus Christ, who can do all these things for us. Our faith invites us to put faith and trust in Jesus. Like the psalm says, those who keep the faith will be BLESSED forever!
Beginning this coming Sunday, October 2, we will be inviting specific classes from the Parish Day School, PSR and home school programs to come to Mass and receive a blessing. Why? Precisely because it is necessary for them to know that we are praying for them. They need to know that we as a community of faith are praying for them on Sunday. But not only on Sunday but for the whole month in a special way. For the month of October, we are inviting all the Pre-school, Pre-K, and Kindergarten classes to come to the 9:00am Mass to receive a blessing. We will bless them after communion. I invite all of you to keep these students in prayer this month that they can continue to allow the Lord to open their hearts to His presence in their lives so that ultimately, they can ‘keep the faith forever.’ Then, after Mass we invite all of them, with their families, to come partake in a donut as it will be Donut Sunday! Looking forward to how God will bless our children this year.
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
Ps. Above is a picture of our students from Pre-K!
