May 4, 2013
First, I just want to express my gratitude to all of the Religious Education families and especially all of our wonderful Catechists and Aides for a great year. Change is never easy, especially after a beloved DRE leaves, and I'm so extra grateful for the kindness and welcome of the whole St. Denis community in my first year as the new DRE.
Even though our Religious Education classes are coming to an end this Sunday (May 5th), we still have two First Communion celebrations and a Confirmation celebration to look forward to! Also, we will offer Children's Liturgy of the Word throughout the summer for any of our kids who are in town and would like to participate. So, I hope you will continue to join us as often as possible throughout the summer at the 9:30am family mass at St. Denis.
We've begun gearing up for an even more faith-filled and family-centered year of Religious Education, Sacramental Prep, and Youth Ministry for next year. The tentative 2013-2014 Calendar is now available for scheduling purposes. Especially for our older kids and teens, there are a lot of opportunities for Summer 2014, so I hope you will mark your calendars now.
Lastly, to help us prepare our resources efficiently, we're offering Early-bird registration for the month of May. Rather than waiting until mid-summer or even early-fall to register for the 2013-2014 year, registration is available now and includes a small discount as a way of saying "thank you" for helping us get a jump on prep and planning for next year. On June 1st, the system will switch to regular registration and regular registration fees.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, please get in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org or 650.854.1081.
