From The Pastor
This Sunday is Catechetical Sunday. I wish to acknowledge and thank all our catechists for giving their time and sharing their faith to teach our children. The Faith Formation Program is an integral part of our parish. The handing on of the faith is a grace and a challenge to you as catechists and parents. May God continue to “bless you and keep you and let His face shine upon you.”
This year, as we begin our faith formation program, we lose our Faith Formation Director. Mrs Sheree Leone is leaving us after 23 years of faithful service to St Dunstan Parish. During these years she has fostered the faith in countless number of children. Sheree has been responsible for nurturing and sowing the Word of God in the youth of our parish for a generation. Her legacy will live in us as we live our faith. May the Lord be with Mrs Leone in her new undertakings.
We teach our children in the classroom but more importantly we teach by example. It is important for all of us to show by our lives that we truly believe in the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Christ lives in us, through listening to His Word, prayer and especially in the active participation of the Eucharist. As parents and catechists I encourage you to continue to grow in your own faith as we journey, hand in hand, with a new generation of faithful followers of the Risen Lord.
– Fr. Joe
