Faith Corner

On Palm Sunday, Catholics celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, an event that took place the week before the Lord's death and resurrection. Palm Sunday always falls one week before Easter Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week. In the Readings, Jesus rides a donkey into Jerusalem and is greeted by a large crowd with palm branches and people shouting “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” Laying their coats and palm branches on the ground was a symbolic way for the people to treat Jesus as their king.

Mental Health Corner

This month we are focusing on how we can get more active! We know that getting active is good for our physical health, but it is great for our mental health as well. Here are some ideas you can use to get active as a family this week:


- Go for a bike ride

- Play frisbee, basketball, volleyball, or baseball

- Walk at night and go stargazing

- Go bowling, skating, or to a museum

KIMOCHIS


What are Kimochis? ---- Kimochis are a fast and effective management tool for children and adults to use both at school and at home. Children and parents quickly connect with the characters and the feelings which helps improve student behavior and learning.


How are Kimochis Different? ----- They allow schools, mental health professionals, parents and the military to easily and quickly help kids (and adults) become more resilient and better cope with the challenges of modern life.

  • Safe and non-threatening
  • Tactile and visual rather than verbal
  • Faster than traditional “talking therapy” methods
  • Targeted curriculum for specific behavior and feelings to promote academic, social and emotional success.

OLPH Parish

  1. A Reminder about spring registration for First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion INCLUDING a special invitation for family whose children age 7-10 are not yet Baptized. We have special preparation available for those families so the little ones can be welcomed in Baptism during the Easter season then go on to celebrate the other sacraments with their classmates. Please share widely in your classrooms! A direct invitation from the grade 2-4 teachers would be extremely helpful.
  2. Invitations for two different adult Faith Formation opportunities being offered in April by the parish GiFT Committee (Growing in Faith Together.) Please share with all EICS staff and parents. You do not need to be an OLPH parishioner to participate.
