CHILDREN’S CHOIR season is here! We need singers to fill our choir area! Choir is open to all Parish 4th through 8th graders (RCS, public, private, or home-school students). Practice begins on Tuesday October 21, in the church from 4:30- 5:20 p.m. We meet each Tuesday, and sing about once a month for either the 8:30 or 11:00 Sunday Mass, for Christmas Vigil, Holy Thursday and Easter, First Communion. Registration forms and schedules are available on-line at the Parish website under “Organizations-Music”, and at school from Mr. Dondlinger.
Traditionally, we believe Christ was conceived on March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation. We will watch the parallel development of “Chris” in the womb from March 25 to December 25.
(Week 28)“I am about 14 inches tall now and growing really fast. If Chris were born now, Chris would have an 85% chance of survival because Chris’s lungs have been getting stronger. I’m going to be in my first Life Chain today. The cars may not notice me but my mom will. Not much room to wave in here. My eyes are opening so I will practice blinking at people.”
Sometimes moms have cravings. Pickles and ice cream make a good snack.
“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
(Week 27) “Whoa! I’ve had trouble with my balance but it is getting better. You could hear my heartbeat if you put your ear on my mother’s tummy.” Chris weighs about 2 pounds. I try to stretch out and mom can feel me move about.
Mom’s talking about different names for me. How about Chris?
“Come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord; let us acclaim the Rock of our salvation.” Psalm 95:1
