Thank you to all who attended our meetings regarding our new Family Life curriculum. Please know that I appreciate and respect your feedback. After much deliberation and discussion with Fr. Thomas and those in Trenton, we will go forward with Family Life as follows:
The weeks of January 3, 10 and 17, 2016, Family Life, a comprehensive moral catechesis, will be taught in the classrooms, as per the mandate of the Office of the Bishop.
The Parent Connection booklet, which is for your use in “at home” catechesis, will be sent home with those participating, on January 3, 4, 5. Please return this booklet by the end of January.
Anyone wishing to view the materials in advance can come into the office and look over the textbooks (which will remain in the classroom). Also, further info is available on the RCL Benziger webpage.
If, after prayerful consideration, your family decides not to participate in Family Life, Opt-Out Forms are available in my office. Opt-out Forms must be received in my office no later than December 8 in order for the absences during the Family Life weeks to be considered excused.
As always, thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we work together for the good of our children and families for the glory of our God.
