Squires and Youth Group Trick-or-Treating for Cans!

With the holiday season quickly approaching we will be setting out to collect cans again for Operation Others.  Operation Others provides food assistance to families at Christmas and educates others about these families in our community without enough in order to encourage a preferential option for the poor.   The cans we collect will be taken to Prep to be sorted and boxed to pass out to families in need of a good holiday meal.   On October 29th, from 6:00-7:30 pm, our high school and middle schoolers will be out in the Prarie Lane neighborhood to collect non-perishable canned or dry food items.  If you won’t be home and wish to donate, feel free to leave them on your porch with a note or drop them off at the church in the box labeled OO Trick-or-Treating for Cans.  Thank you in advance for the support!

New Pre-K Program for Religious Ed!

Parents: Our Religious Education Program is going to include an age 4 pre school program beginning this fall. We will be using the God Made Everything series which is a comprehensive early childhood program designed to nurture and enrich the faith and spiritual lives of children. Each developmentally appropriate curriculum is carefully planned so that, at completion, children are ready to continue their faith journey into first grade and beyond. Classes will be combined with our regular class time schedule: 4:30pm – 5:30pm or 6:00pm – 7:00pm. Contact Barb Eastridge at 402 333-8231×1208 for more information.

Registration Reminder

We are in the process of ordering books for the fall and if you haven’t registered your child(ren) please do so as soon as possible.  We attempt to keep costs down and try to order one time as shipping costs are expensive.  As we begin this new year of religious education, please be assured that the catechists in our program are dedicated to helping your children grow in faith and be closer to God.  As parents, you are the primary educators of your children and are their best teachers.  Your children learn the most from the example you set when you pray together and actively participate in mass and the sacraments as a family.  Register by going to the parish website.

MOQ Summer Youth Group

This summer for Youth Group we will be doing the Alpha Youth Film Series.  There are twelve episodes filmed in Vancouver, London, Paris, and Jerusalem, hosted by youth pastors Jason and Ben.  Alpha’s Youth Film Series explores timeless questions about faith, life and God for a new generation of teenagers in an engaging format.  Check out the trailer below!

Starting on Wednesday, May 31, we will be meeting in the Trinity Rooms for dinner at 6:00 pm.  Following dinner, we will be moving to the Future Sacristy to watch the video and discuss.  We will then enjoy desserts and games to end the night by 8:00 pm.

If you are interested in attending Youth Group this summer please contact Jordan at jemoser@archomaha.org.
