Dear Religious Formation Ministers,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you for sharing your time and talent with our children at RF during our Catechetical year Sept 2016 to May 2017. I am sure we have been successful in instilling Catholic values in the children of our parish. May God reward you and bless you for all your hard work.
By the grace of God we have been blessed with Catechists/Aides for this year Sept. 2017 to May 2018. Welcome new Catechists/Aides, Building Coordinators, and Hall Monitors. May God grant you wisdom to spread His word through words and actions.
Be sure you are always in my prayers. May GOD continue to bless us all so that we may share to establish His Kingdom on Earth.
I look forward to meeting all of you as we begin the Catechetical year together.
God bless you and your family.
