Fall Festival Notes:
We just want to thank everyone who helped out with the Fall Festival this past weekend! It could not happen without the nearly 100 volunteers it takes to pull it off! We received several positive comments about a variety of aspects of the festival. It was nice to see a strong turn out of parishioners attend the festival. Although the weather was rocky Saturday afternoon….it cleared up and ended up being a beautiful evening and a wonderful Sunday. Within the next few weeks we will be asking all parishioners to complete a short survey about your Fall Festival experience to see where we can continue to improve.

Parents of Children with Special Needs: We will be hosting a meeting on Sunday November 9th at 11:45am. This meeting is a preliminary meeting for parents to share with us what the needs of their children are. We would like to take this opportunity to hear and understand the needs of our parishioners and respond with ideas on ways we can better meet their Faith Formation needs.
Dear parishioners and extended community,
The following postings are the proposed lease arrangement for the lease of part of our building space to Holy Spirit Academy that we have sent to the Archbishop for permission to cast his and the Vicar General’s vote by proxy in the affirmative. If we receive permission, Holy Spirit Academy, a private classical education high school taught through the lens of the Catholic faith, will begin classes here in the fall. The lease mentions a use addendum that will describe in greater detail, some of the working rules and arrangements necessary to best accommodate both the church and the school. As arrangements are made, they will be made known to all involved. Thank you and please pray for the success of this endeavor!

Faith Filled Family Series: We are thrilled to be offering a new adventure for the whole family this year. Mark your calendars for November 19th from 6:00-7:30pm. We will be hosting a great event for Faith Formation Families with incredible and inspiring speakers for parents and fun Christ centered activities for students. All Faith Formation parents will listen to dynamic speakers while students participate in great Faith enriching activities. November’s theme for Family Night is “Made in the Image and Likeness of God”. Jean Stoplestad, Director of Marriage, Family and Life at the Archdiocese will be speaking to the women on “Motherhood”. Bill Dill, marriage preparation and youth ministry events coordinator for the Archdiocese, will be speaking to the men on “Fatherhood”. We will have Faith Filled Family nights on January 28th and March 11th as well.
Activities for the youth will be led by older students but we need adults to be present during this time. These nights will begin in the Worship Space with opening announcements to the theme of the night and family prayer. Students will then leave and come down to the Faith Formation classrooms and participate in crafts, skits, games, etc. In order to make these nights possible we need the whole parish to support and help with these faith forming events. We need 45 adult volunteers and 10 adult nursery volunteers to be present on the Faith Formation side of the evening. Adults will not be asked to lead the activities but be a presence and chaperone the students and children of the program. It would be wonderful to get as many Virtus trained volunteers without children in the program as possible. This will allow more of the parents to hear these fantastic speakers.
