Rooted (gr 5/6) Parent Update 11/23
Greetings SAL Families!
A busy weekend for youth ministry! Fall service day Saturday was cold but fun! We raked the homes of 2 parishioners who were eternally grateful to our youth! Sunday night we had our youth penance service which was lovely! We had the most beautiful music from two of our volunteers, adoration, and the beautiful Sacrament of Reconciliation. No blog this week as there was nothing else taught in class. I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving! We look forward to seeing you December 4.
11/27: Happy Thanksgiving! No Rooted
12/4: What is Love? The Two Greatest Commandments!
12/11: Christmas Party
12/18 - 1/1 - No Youth Group
Dinner: Spaghetti and meat sauce with garlic bread
Sunday is the first day of Advent and our Church's new year!
Don't forget to wear purple to Mass.
Take time to mark this holy season by incorporating some of the activities mentioned below! We are blessed because Christmas starts December 25 and continues through January 9th! While everyone packs up their decorations, we just begin!
- Joyfully, Christina
This year's Children's Christmas Pageant will be on
DECEMBER 24 at 7 pm
, just before the 7:30pm Mass.
There are two rehearsals:
Saturday, December 10, 9am - 10:30am
Tuesday, December 20, 6:30pm - 8pm
A few things to note when signing up:
Both rehearsals are MANDATORY for all characters.
Rehearsal on Dec 20 is MANDATORY for PARENTS to assist with fittings, but it would be helpful if parents attended both rehearsals to keep kids orderly.
Please note child's clothing size in comments.
Please direct any questions to Laura Shuler at
If you can believe it next Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent and our Church's new year!
Please think about having your teens wear purple for Mass to mark the occasion!
I know we all have lofty plans for Advent that usually crumble after day 3, but hopefully you can find something easy and fun to implement in your home for Advent. There are many great ways to mark the season with your family, and I encourage you to do so! It's my favorite liturgical season. If your kids are older, following the Jesse Tree or lighting a weekly Advent Wreath is a great way to honor the season. Be sure to read the Scripture passage together. There are some resources and ideas below!
