CONFIRMATION BASIC PRAYERS EVALUATION - DEC. 12, 13, 16

posted Dec 7, 2017, 6:23 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Dec 7, 2017, 6:24 PM ]

This is to inform you that we will be evaluating the Confirmation candidates next class (December 12, 13, and 16) on their “Basic Prayers” as part of the preparation for Confirmation.  These prayers include the Sign of the Cross, the Our Father, the Hail Mary, the Glory Be, the Act of Contrition, and the Apostles’ Creed
  • (If you need a copy of the handout with the prayers, it is available in the "Things to Know" handout on the “Confirmation Page” of our website.)
 
We will be seeing whether or not each candidate has learned their basic prayers.  We will be asking them to pray these prayers with us individually to ensure that they have learned them and so that they can continue using these prayers as they prepare for their Confirmation.
 
As previously stated, we are asking for your assistance in helping your candidate to learn these prayers by going over and praying them together.  The best way for them to learn these prayers is to pray them every day, and what could be better than to pray together as a family daily!
 
Thank you, and God bless you.

PARISH FESTIVAL - CANDIDATE VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

posted Nov 29, 2017, 8:53 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Nov 29, 2017, 8:55 PM ]

As you know, our annual St. Kevin Parish Festival will be taking place this Sunday, December 3rd.  Remember that, as part of requirements for this year, candidates must complete two volunteer hours at the Parish Festival.  We had informed the candidate in class of their assigned two-hour shift for the festival.

Please refer to the spreadsheet on the "CONFIRMATION" page to see each candidate's assignment.

Upon arriving, you need to sign in with us at the Volunteer Booth. The volunteer booth is located at the field behind the school.
  •  Enter the school as you usually do when you come to class (through the large green canopy) and continue straight into the field outside.
  •  Once you get out from the school building, the “Volunteer Booth” will be next to the concession stand on the right. That is where we will be.
  •  You will need to sign in with us, and then you will be sent to your assigned area.
  •  After your two hours are completed, you will need to come back and sign out with us, and we will mark that you completed your two volunteer hours.

The candidate's hours will NOT be counted if they do not follow the above mentioned procedure.

Thank you, and God bless you.

In addition, we thank all of you for your generous contributions to our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  We put together over 100 bags earlier today with the help of the Confirmation Classes, the parish community, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Furthermore, we collected close to $1,000 in cash donations to be used for the turkeys.  All of the charitable work we are able to accomplish is only possible through your generosity.
 
St. Vincent de Paul will also need help in delivering these Thanksgiving baskets to these families.  We invite you and your family to come to the Parish Hall on Tuesday, November 21st at 3:30 pm to pick up a basket or two and deliver them with love to these families in need. 
 
As we celebrate this occasion with our families and loved ones, let us remember to be thankful to God for all the graces he has bestowed on us and all the blessings he constantly provides for us.
 
We wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving!

THANK YOU TO ALL!

posted Oct 22, 2017, 10:42 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education

We wanted to thank everyone who came and celebrated with us at our Religious Education Mass today.
 
A special thank you to all the students from the Confirmation classes who participated as lectors, greeters, and offertory bearers.  They did an excellent job!  Special thanks also go to all the members of our Music Ministry Choir, who did an outstanding job in leading us in praising our Lord during our first Religious Education Mass.  They all sounded amazing! 
 
Thank you, also, to all of you, parents and family members, for your presence today in celebrating such a special day with us.  It was a great joy to see all of our families from our Religious Education Program come together as a community of faith here at St. Kevin.  In addition, it was an incredible blessing for us to have witnessed the complete initiation of Juan Pablo into our Catholic faith.
 
We look forward to coming together again in our future Religious Education Masses.  We pray for continued blessings for you and your families.
