Please mark your calendars and plan to attend the annual parent meeting about our Faith Formation and Youth Ministry programs, Sacramental Preparation programs and how we can continue to engage your families in the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. Meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, August 25, at 7:00 pm or Saturday, August 29, following the 5:00 pm Mass at St Boniface in the church.
This meeting is intended for families with children attending public, Catholic, or private schools or those who are home schooled. For more information, contact Sister Kathleen 507-9961 or firstname.lastname@example.org
As a reminder, last fall Bishop Matano announced the following as part of the Diocese’s Sacramental Policies: Children must be registered in a program (Catholic School or Parish Faith Formation programs) for one year prior to preparation for the sacraments of Confirmation, First Communion or First Penance.

August 23 – Music in Catholic liturgy is what we might call “ritual music.” That is, it is integral to the enactment of rituals and the proclamation of texts in the liturgy; they are not something optional or tacked on. The music accents or amplifies the various elements of the liturgy, and preference for singing is given to those parts that are of greater importance. Read more.
