The Light News & Updates 11/14/2014

Dear Parents, Welcome to the Light! It was a great night in the Hall Wednesday night! We played a fun game called “Dirty Dishes” and was entertained by a great skit performed by our teens and Core Leaders. Father Al joined us and answered any questions that arose from the discussion questions and gave us a blessing. We are so fortunate to have a loving and giving priest for our youth! We love you Father Al! This Edge Night was about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Thus far this semester, we have discussed the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation). Tonight we discussed one of the two Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation. Jesus gave authority to the apostles to forgive sins and that authority is passed down to bishops and priests today. When we sin, we offend God, as well as the Church and our community. We approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation to ask forgiveness. We find healing in hearing the words, “Your sins have been forgiven, go forth and sin no more.” Through the precepts of the Catholic Church, we are called to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation two times a year. However, to grow in our relationship with Jesus, we should frequent the sacrament more often and make it a part of our spiritual routine. Discuss with your child the importance of going to Reconciliation and help him/ her attend within the next month. Check your parish’s Reconciliation times and go as a family. Here are some conversation starters for your child: 1. Why do you think some people are afraid to go to Reconciliation? 2. How can going to Reconciliation often help you grow closer to God? 3. Tell me about the skit that you saw tonight. What did you learn about God’s love and mercy? REMINDERS November 22, 8 am to 12 noon Habitat for Humanity We are in need of 25 to 30 Teens over the age of 14 and all parents.  Please consider sharing your time. More information to follow. November 22, 6pm Karaoke Dinner You are invited to attend a night of fun entertainment. Adults $15, Teens $10 and Children under 3 is a donation.  All proceeds go to all of our wonderful youth. Please come out and support our beautiful and talented children. Please see Miss Kim for tickets at class. Feed the Hungry and XLT Mass is this Sunday. Secret Santa, Las Posadas, Giving Tree and Project Share information will be given out at the next LIGHT class on  the 19th and it will be in the Learning Center . It is a night on Advent and they can prepare by reading Chapter 14. Please remember to sign in and out your child for class. Thank you! God Bless, The Light Core Team
