Saint Walk – 10.25.19

St. Alphonsus Catholic School prides itself on sending well-rounded, faithful graduates into the world. Our 5th grade students spend the fall semester exploring their faith and choosing a saint they identify with.
 
The Saint Walk Project is the culmination of faith permeating the daily classroom lesson plans; Social Studies as they discover more about the life and times of their chosen saint, Language Arts as they write their own script, and creatively as they memorize their script and present it to their fellow students. These living saints travel the halls of St. Alphonsus following Mass on Friday, October 25th.

Mass 10.18.19 – Put It Out There

What does it mean to be a disciple? What does it mean to show the love of Jesus? Where do we even start? Those big questions were a part of Deacon Allen’s mass message this morning. Here are a few of Deacon’s talking points to continue the conversation in your home: – A disciple is a person that spreads God’s word and shares the love of Jesus. – We are all disciples. – We are called to be models to others. It’s a big responsibility but is something that every Christian can do. – A disciple doesn’t have to travel to far away lands like the people in the Bible did to show God’s love. We can do it in our classrooms by being kind to our classmates, be a good friend on the playground, and be a help to our teachers.

Put it out there wherever you go. Show God’s love. It’s not hard. #showinglove #massmessage #calledtobeaSAINT
