Prayer in the classroom is a crucial part of every lesson. To assist with setting up a prayer area in the classroom, Mary Shields, has generously sewn some beautiful prayer cloths. These cloths are green on one side and purple on the other. They are located in the CCE closets and should be used during your classroom then placed back in the closet for the next CCE class to use.
I've included a link for ideas for Prayer in the Classroom. Please take advantage of these beautiful new cloths to create your prayer space.
Parents & Catechists & Volunteers,
Please take to heart the message in the document by Pope Francis, THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL.
"I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”.
Take the time to read it and see how it applies to your life!

On my blog asked a challenge question to those who were attending a recent Family Retreat. The blogspot title is THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL IN MOTHERHOOD. Read through it and send me your reflections. Let's all EXPERIENCE THE JOY!
