SHARING THE FAITH
Dear Parishioners, Friends and Guests,
Who is — or was, if you are out of school — your favorite teacher? What is it that makes him or her so memorable? Where would we be today without dedicated teachers who inspired us to learn more about this wonderful world we have been given?
It is the same with our Christian faith. We are not born knowing everything about Jesus Christ. We need dedicated teachers and catechists to share with our children and young people the great story of Jesus Christ.
We are very blessed here at St. Joan of Arc to have wonderful teachers and catechists in our elementary school and religious education program under the guidance of Sr. Pat Pycik and Mrs. Linda Mueller, respectively. I want to thank our teachers and catechists for not only sharing their faith with our children but for also sharing God’s love and mercy with them.
Please pray for your kids’ teachers, no matter what school they attend. Pray, too, for your children’s catechists, the men and women who volunteer so much of their time to come here every week to help our kids learn about God’s love for them. We are indebted to them.
In the Center Section of today’s bulletin, you can read more about how all disciples of Jesus Christ are responsible for “echoing” the faith.
Be a good teacher this week!
