PSR Report for February 2024

  • PSR continues to go well! Attendance is pretty good overall. When children are absent two classes in a row, I check in on the family to let them know their child/children are missed and ask if they need anything.  It has been a good outreach to find out sometimes if there is something serious going on with the family (sickness), and also to let them know that we care. There is no PSR on Ash Wednesday, February 14. 
  • The PSR children helped at this past Sunday’s 11:15 am Mass ~ altar serving, ushering assistants, readers, and gift bearers.  The children did very well, and it was nice having them be a part when Bishop Rice was here.
  • Dan Harter, after signing up interested PSR students, is training new altar servers on Sundays after the 11:15 am Mass this month and into March.
  • We are preparing for our upcoming Confirmation, Saturday, February 24, 2024 at the 4:30 pm Mass.  The front sections of the Church will be reserved for families of the candidates. 41 young people will be confirmed.   
  • The Adoration experiences for our Confirmation candidates seemed to be a good special session. Several of them had likely never been to Adoration outside of their Confirmation retreat back in December. I hope that we continue to provide this as part of their Confirmation preparation.
  • The Bishop Barron Lenten three study groups will begin meeting this Sunday, February 18, next Tuesday evening February 20, and Thursday, February 22 in the morning. More details on time and places is in the bulletin.
  • Confirmation One will be having a special session: The Teaching Mass, Wednesday, March 6, from 6:30-7:30 pm.  This will be for ALL the students (Sunday, Wednesday, Catholic School kids, home schooled). Fr. Mike will be leading this.
  • Second grade classes as well as the older Sacramenta Prep class began preparing for First Communion at the end of last month. Banner kits will go out before spring break. The First Communion Workshop and Family Banquet will be Sunday, April 7. We have 53 children preparing to receive First Communion on Sunday, April 21, 2024.
  • There will be a VBS planning meeting on Tuesday, March 5. We have St. Agnes as well as IC Parishes participating with us. We will have a kick off with handouts to promote VBS shortly after spring break after all the Masses.
