FAITH FORMATION CLASSES HAVE STARTED - ARE YOUR CHILDREN REGISTERED?
Faith Formation classes have started. Our class numbers are much smaller this year, indicating that many children have not registered. Please take the time to come to the parish center office to fill out a registration form. We miss your children. Several students asked me where some of the last year's students were. I told them, "I don't know."
We are here to help you in instructing your children in their Catholic faith. If you have any questions, please contact Noreen Placek 762-2830.
Totus Tuus 2014
Holy Rosary hosted Totus Tuus the first week of June again this year. Students in first through eighth grades met from 9:00am - 3:00pm. High school students met in the evening from 7:30-9:30. Totus Tuus means Totally Yours. Their mission is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion and an openness to their vocation. This year the program emphasized the Ten Commandments and the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. The first through eighth grade students attended Mass daily.
Each day started with fun and silly games to get the students warmed up and interacting with each other. After that was a break out session where each age group went to a classroom to learn about their faith, then it was time to prepare for Mass and learn a few songs for Mass. After Mass, the students gathered in the gym to eat their sack lunches and then go out for recess where team sports were emphasized. Cool down time was next as the students were encouraged to drink water and sit quietly to cool down after recess. From there the students went to classrooms to learn more about their faith. A break followed in the gym with more fun games and then they went back to the classrooms for the final learning time. The team and all students gathered in the gym for the closing where they reviewed what they had learned during the day and finished with fun games and the "Go Bananas" song.
The week came to fun end when it closed with a water fight Friday afternoon. The class who had earned the most points, based on their behavior, politeness, and attitude got to cover one of the team members in shaving cream. The seventh and eighth grades earned the privilege and chose to cover Dana with shaving cream. The rest of the group watched as Dana was totally covered in shaving cream. Once that was finished and pictures were taken, the water fight began. Students were encouraged to bring water guns from home and a few brought ice cream buckets. Everyone played and all got wet. Two games were played, the balloon toss and the "fill the bucket with a sponge" race. The students really enjoyed the afternoon fun. Before everyone went home, all enjoyed a freeze pop to cool down.
A Fun Picture of the Group!
