Happy Tuesday! 

This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. It marks the end of the Liturgical year. This feast reminds us that Christ is the King of the universe and we should put him first. Sound familiar? JOY- Jesus First! 

We are encouraged to live our faith in Public not just in “safe spaces” like our homes and Church. How would someone know you are Catholic without you telling them? Do you pray before meals at a restaurant and use the Sign of the Cross? Do you say God bless you when someone sneezes? Do you tell people who share a need or a concern that you will pray for them? Do you say the Rosary when you are waiting in line? Are you kind and considerate? There are many ways to share your faith without saying a word. How can you model this for your children? We will begin the Advent season on November 27th. Is your home ready? Now is the time to pull out your Advent wreath and make sure you have your Advent Candles. Have you seen the flameless Advent Candles?

Boy Scouts


Catholic boys and girls are welcome in Scouting. Youth, ages 5 to 10, actively engage in Cub Scout adventures, with schedules designed to dovetail with your family’s busy schedules. Older youth, ages 11 to 17, engage in activities and adventures in their Scout Troop – like camping, exciting day trips and engaging service projects. As parents or guardians, we want what is best for our kids – not just now but for the future. We want our kids to grow up to be good citizens and faithful Catholics. Scouting is a time-honored – and fun – way to support your efforts to raise your children to become responsible, well-rounded adults. Young people have the opportunity to earn religious emblems by completing faith-focused activities and projects. Scouting is a great way to encourage your kids to put down their electronics and engage in real-life activities that develop a wide range of skills, strengthen their values and help them grow in their Catholic faith – while having a ton of fun!
