Class Notes: 2022-2023

Children's Liturgy of the Word

CLOW for the third Sunday of ordinary time was about the invitation by Jesus to 4 fisherman to come and become fishers of men. The children practiced saying “I follow Jesus” and shared ways to show that. They also took turns to “fish” and put their catch in a net.  The inside will hold names of those they will tell and show they follow Jesus, as we are all disciples. The Christian Formation classes that follow the Sunday liturgy further explain and connect the gospel to their lives.

Jesus is the Best Gift

The Christian Formation classes observed Advent through classroom posters, their personal duplicate of the poster, the Advent Wreath and the gospels of those 4 Sundays. The church year has begun.

PreSchool/GrK-1 Class Update

We have challenged our youngest learners to 100 Acts of Kindness by the end of the year! Jesus teaches us Kindness. Our parents and family teach us Kindness. How many times a day do you show Kindness? There is no doubt that our St. Therese kids can meet this challenge. We are off to a great start!

Mini-Food Drive

In Preschool/GrK-1 we recently talked about a Gospel reading where a man had no food, no home, and sores on his legs that dogs would lick. How can we help someone in need? We could give them food! The answer doesn't have to be so complicated. And just like that, we had each donated some food items to make a meal for a family.

October - Month of the Rosary

October is the month of the rosary, which uses repetitive prayers as one fingers the beads of the rosary. A prayer corner in the church allows an opportunity to petition Mary or pray the rosary.  Other parishioners have loaned their representations of the Holy Mother.  The rosary (One Nation Under God) is prayed after the liturgy during the third weekend of the month. 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word for Sunday’s 9:00 mass has resumed for the second and fourth Sunday of each month.  A recent lesson included finding of lost coins, the reading of the gospel, and a Chutes and Ladder game that involved good and bad choices.  The children return to Mass at the start of the Liturgy of the Eucharist – the Offertory.

Remembrance Stone

A remembrance stone/plaque has been placed in the garden near the Bluemound entrance for our Catechists.  These adjectives are just a few of those we think of when remembering those who shared their faith at St. Therese.
