Congratulations to our HFB newly confirmed! A picture of the Confirmation Class is posted on the HFB Facebook page. All the confirmation candidates did a nice job! Archbishop Jackels gave a homily on Give and Forgive to the Confirmundi. Those are words we can all live by! Now that this group is confirmed I hope to see them join our Youth Group with Mandy O’Neill. We are never done learning about our faith or sharing our gifts!
Banner Night for the First Communicants and parents will be on April 10th at 6:00 p.m. in the Chapel of St. Bernadette. Each student is to have a parent or grandparent with them to help them make their First Communion Banners. Banners will be displayed for First Communion. I will have a banner kit for you. If you would like to bring extra supplies for your banner such as glitter glue, stick on beads or extra felt that would be great. I encourage you to be creative and make this special for your child. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at 538-3933. First Communion practice will be Wednesday, April 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the I.C. (Lansing) Church. Please remember to send back the Baptismal Sheets.
We will have no regular Wednesday night class on April 17th due to Holy Week. Please attend Masses as a family. See bulletin at www.holyfamilyofthebluffs.org for times and locations.
The last Faith Formation Class is planned for Wednesday, May 1st.
Please remember to check out our website for the calendar and the Family Matters Newsletter. On the Family Matters Newsletter link there are some really good Lenten things you can do with your children. Remember during this Lenten season to Pray, Fast and Give.
Thanks and Blessings,
Rita Mooney, FFL
