SM & SOZ FEBRUARY 2022 NEWSLETTER

"OPENING OUR HEARTS TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD"

NOTE FROM THE DRE

Greetings Families,


I hope you are staying healthy and warm!


February is a wonderful month to take some time and reflect on the love of the Holy Family. The church dedicates the month of February to the Holy Family. On our website, you will find resources and books about the Holy Family, including one from Mark Hart. See the button below for February Books of the Month and Holy Habit.


Our service project for this month is Valentine's for the Nursing home! Younger grades completed this already. Also, in February many of our grades will be completing the Safe Environment Lesson, so I have included details further down in this newsletter. Parents are always welcome to join us for these lessons. A newsletter will be sent home regarding the Safe Environment Lesson with all grades.


Blessings, Lesa Staehler, DRE

ST. MARY & SONS OF ZEBEDEE FAITH FORMATION OFFICE

The mission of St. Mary and Sons of Zebedee Faith Formation Program is to aid parents in the Catholic faith formation of their children. At Baptism, parents promised to carry out the faith formation of their children and are considered their children’s primary teachers. Our parish catechists assist parents and children by providing quality religious education in a safe and spiritual setting. The collaboration between parents, catechists and students is essential to the growth of the Catholic Faith. The partnership promotes children to grow in their love for God and their understanding of their Catholic faith. It also cultivates their God-given gifts and talents and encourages them to follow in the path of Jesus. Furthermore, it encourages them to serve God and others compassionately and generously as Catholic Christians, which leads them to evolve into active members of their faith community.
