Why Catholic Religious Education? In case you haven’t heard, “Confirmation is not graduation!” As with anything we learn in life, practice, practice, practice reinforces the knowledge and the skill in one’s attainment of perfection. So too, with Catholic education. Hearing about the words, deeds, and life of Jesus Christ is a lifelong learning experience in Christian values...faith in God, respect, responsibility, self-control, moderation, honesty, kindness, compassion, contentment, thankfulness, patience, perseverance, peace, humility, and commitment are lifelong positive values which guide us every day and especially through those times we classify as life’s stormy seas. With this in mind, please enroll your children in our valuable Religious Education program which is offered from Pre-K through eighth grade, even if your children have received their Confirmations. A teen program is also offered for students in grades nine through twelve.
Classes begin on Sunday, September 8th in the Daisy Bronson Middle School wing of Littleton High School. After this class, the Catechetical Mass will be celebrated in St. Rose of Lima Church at 10:30 a.m. followed by a ‘Meet & Greet’ in the parish hall. This affords students, parents, and catechists the opportunity for Fr. Mark’s blessing for the school year and to mingle and get to know one another. Religious Education registration forms are still available in the back of St. Rose Church, the rectory, and on the side bulletin board at Our Lady of the Snows Church. Religious Ed registration fees are $50.00 per family. Forms must be filled out clearly on both sides. Please place cash or check made out to St. Rose of Lima Parish in an envelope marked ‘Religious Ed’ and drop into any weekend collection basket.
Keep Kids Safe: Technology Tips: Instagram: Instagram is a popular photo sharing app. It is the #1 social media platform used by teens. Here are some tips for parents whose children want to use Instagram:
Instagram states that users should be at least thirteen years old.
Private accounts are safer because the user has to approve follower requests.
Advise children not to share photos of friends without their permission.
Remind children to only post appropriate photos and comments.
Be aware that in-app private messaging can occur.
Consider obtaining your own account to understand how Instagram works.
