The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated for the first time this December by several of the young children of our parish who have been preparing this fall.  Please pray for them and their families.  

Parents of children receiving the sacrament for the first time, please notify the Director of Religious Education when you will bring your child to the sacrament. Options available: 1) Wednesday, December 11 at 6:30 pm; 2) during the school day the week of December 9; 3) Saturdays in December before Christmas or 4) Tuesday, December 3 at 7:00 pm.  My contact information can be found below.

Fourth graders at St. Mary’s School and Parish School of Religion will receive their Sacred Heart Badges on this Wednesday, November 13 during Adoration and Benediction. School prayer will be at 9:30 am. PSR prayer will be at 6:30 pm.  The Sacred Heart Badge reminds us of the love of Christ. Carrying a badge also initiates you into the Pope’s prayer network. Find out more information here.  

In the ancient liturgy of Benediction, the assembly is blessed with the actual, real and physical presence of the Lord in the form of the Blessed Sacrament displayed in a monstrance.  Adoration will include prayer, praise, singing hymns, a Gospel reading and homily from Deacon Tom Graber. The reception of the Sacred Heart Badge will be after the homily. Find out more about Benediction here.

There is a new PSR Remind group this year.  It is the only general PSR Remind group this year.  Please sign up for this Remind group, even if you signed up last year (that group was archived) or are a member of a sacraments Remind group (different reminders).  The PSR “All Grades” Remind will be used for weather cancellations and reminders about upcoming events. A link is now available on the PSR website page. To get in touch with me quickly, Remind is my preferred method.  Use the Remind app when your child is going to miss a Wednesday evening session. Link here to PSR page on parish website. 

Our parish in conjunction with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati works to create a safe and holy environment for our children.  Each volunteer is required to be specifically trained on the archdiocesan decrees on child protection and the behaviors of those who would abuse our children in any way. Additionally, volunteers read a monthly bulletin that serves as on-going education in maintaining our parish as a safe environment.
