Is it too soon to think about catechism, Bible studies and other formation opportunities in the fall?  Of course not!
If you're thinking of volunteering as a catechist, starting a small group study in your parish, or just need some ideas, contact your parish religious education coordinator or the diocesan Office of Faith Formation.  We're here to help!
For fun facts about your faith and this Sunday's Gospel, check out our Community Weekly
Each weekly contains an activity families can complete with their children or grandchildren, and a reflection question suitable for the drive to school or work. 
As children seek to better know and understand God through reflection or activity, allow them freedom to find Him in their own way. Instead of judging their reflections with a "good job" or "try again", try affirming their seeking with "I wonder ...".
We've suspended new weeklies for now, but may resume some time in the fall.  In the meantime, have a look at these first issues and let us know what you think.
