      During our 11:00 am mass on Sundays, we offer a program for Children ages 3 - 5. The Children spend the entire mass learning about the Sunday Gospel and throughout the year they are also introduced to Catholic concepts. This program runs from October until April. Pre-registration is required.

      In total, through the model of the ‘Our Father’ as Jesus’ teaching on prayer, we can discern 6-steps – 1) Make Time; 2) Listen; 3) See our time with God as intimate time between a parent and a child to create the proper disposition for prayer. And as we look at this Sunday, the content of our prayer should include 4) learning to see and trust God’s will for us; 5) asking him to meet our daily needs and those of others in our petitionary prayer and thanking him for his work in our lives; and 5) to make repentance and forgiveness always a part of our lives, which is why our Sign of Peace is always such an important symbol of our willingness to seek peace with all, as God has done with us through the sacrifice of his only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

      As mentioned in this week's homily, we will spend two weeks delving into Jesus' teaching on prayer. Here are the 3-points for your consideration this week: 1) Make time for prayer - make prayer time a daily part of your routine! 2) Remember to whom it is that we pray - God our loving Father, not just a distant, impersonal being in the universe, but a God who desires a personal relationship with all of us. 3) Learn to Listen - spend time in silence with our Lord, and listen to his voice - prayer should be a two-way conversation!
