CONGRATULATIONS TO CONFIRMATION CLASS OF 2018
Sixty-six OLQP parish youth were confirmed Friday, September 14 by the Most Reverend Timothy Broglio. The Confirmation Liturgy was held at St. Ann’s parish to accommodate this year’s large class. Please hold these young Christians in your prayers as they continue their formation into adulthood. Congratulations to these young people whose names appear in this week's bulletin.
Catholic Foundations, for grades PK-6th, and Family Mass will begin again for the year on Saturday, October 13, with classes running from 2:30-4:00 pm, and Family Mass to follow from 4:00-5:00 pm. Parents can take part in an adult-friendly, on-theme discussion with Fr. Tim in the Church (or Hall) while kids' classes are in session. Please register for Foundations classes under the "Children and Family" tab on the OLQP website, or pick up a Faith Formation registration form in the back of the church, and turn it into Theresa Palmisano. After October, all Foundations classes and Family Masses will take place on the first Saturday of the month, same time, same place! Finally, to celebrate the start to the new year of Faith Formation, we'll be hosting a Welcome Back Potluck for all families directly following the first Family Mass on October 13! Please bring a favorite side dish, and we'll provide the main dish!
Please email Director of Faith Formation, Theresa Palmisano with any questions (email@example.com).
