Overview of November - feast days, readings, many saints to discuss all month

Week of :

  • Nov. 12 - 8th Class - 32nd Sun. in Ordinary time: Giving thanks (Thanksgiving) / St. Leo the Great / Examination of Conscience (as we move into advent)

Language of Mystery


  • Teacher absences: If you are unable to be in class, please let me know as soon as possible. We are required to have two teachers in each classroom, so we are in a bind when we are not aware of an absence. (I completely understand of unexpected emergencies!)
  • Many of you who have found/provided their own sub! Thank you for your help!
  • Student Attendance: Please transfer all attendance to the yellow page from signatures. Sometimes catechist's children may not have been signed in, so it's extremely helpful when you fill out the yellow attendance after each class.
