St. John Vianney Holiest Week of the Year Begins with Palm Sunday

This Sunday, April 13, 2014 begins the holiest week of the year for the Catholic Church! As we will not be meeting with F.R.E.P. families for another few weeks, there are a few things we'd like to help you plan and prepare for this important week with your family.

Take some time to review the following resources and reminders the F.R.E.P. Planning Core Team has prepared for all.

Seasonal Movies

Below are links to two movies families may want to consider viewing together in preparation for Holy Week. Of course, all families are reminded to consider these options in the best interest of their own family. To assist in making a decision about what would be appropriate to view, the reviews included below are helpful in describing the content and what to expect.

APRIL/MAY F.R.E.P. Updates

  • DON'T FORGET: It's never too late to turn in F.R.E.P. homework! SJV F.R.E.P. Homework Objective Sheet return numbers are unfortunately low this year due to the challenging weather we've all dealt with this winter.

  • If you are in need of objective sheets, you can e-mail a F.R.E.P. Core Team Member or your child's instructor for copies.

  • Teacher Needed: The SJV Family Religious Education Program is still in need of a 6th grade teacher for the 2014-15 school year. Please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit touches the heart of the perfect person willing to share our faith with our 6th graders.

2014 Passion Mime at 11:00 and 7:00 Masses

For several years, middle and high school students at St. John Vianney have presented a very sincere and spiritually moving presentation of the Lord's Passion during Palm Sunday Weekend. The presentation is a very appropriate and spiritual way for young people and children to begin to understand the very important event in history.

This year's passion mime will be presented at the 11:00 and 7:00 pm masses on Palm Sunday. Below is a short slide-show video of the 2013 presenation.
