October 2014 Rel. Ed Newsletter

Fall is here now.  We are really getting geared up for Religious Education.  Just a reminder that 8th grade and High School PSR classes go to 8:30pm.  Any siblings needing to wait for their older brother or sister are asked to come to the rectory basement to wait unti the older classes are done. Our regular PSR classes in October will be October 1, 8, 15, and 29th.  

October 22nd is the 6th-12th grade Scavenger Hunt/Food Drive.  We need parent drivers for all of these grades.  Please let Erin know if you can drive.  If you didn't fill out a permission form and medical form at enrollment for your 6th grade or older student you can download them from the website at http://sacredheartpratt.com/k-8/documents.  Just print them out, fill them out, and send with your student.  You may put multiple students per form.  

We could still use helpers in the PSR classes or to help with Day care.  Let me know.  

All First Communion students and parents, we will have a parent meeting during PSR in the upstairs of the parish office (come in the front door) on October 8th at 7pm.  The First Communion Enrollment Rite will be held during Mass on October 12th at 8:30am.  Please come with your student.  

Confirmation Parents we will have a meeting during PSR on October 15th in the upstairs of the parish office (come in the front door).  This will be information about the process.  
NCYC students and parents, we are planning the annual bierock or hot pocket sale for October 31 to Nov. 2nd.  Please keep an eye out for forms and emails about this.  

Religious Formation Commission will meet at 5:45pm on Wed. October 8th in the Parish offices.  

High School Youth Rally:  Our high school rally with Steve Angrisano is set for November 22 -23.  The Diocesan Youth Council has been working on this event since their leadership weekend in August.  Part of the planning for the rally includes a change of venue.  The Rally will be held at the Dodge House Hotel/Convention Center.  Be on the look out for more information about this in October.  The diocese works hard to bring in good presenters and many of us have heard Steve Angrisano sing and talk at NCYC.
