The planning team is currently organizing feature aspects but the day will include the chance to attend Penance as well as Mass with Bishop Mark.

Dear Sophomores and families,
I hope you are looking forward to next Sunday and the prayer service planned by the 10th graders of St Clement. As we saw the 9th graders receive their Bibles last Sunday, I reflected on how good it is for students to have opportunities to read, study, and share the Scriptures with each other, their families, and the parish community.
This message is to confirm the details for Sunday, just in case your child forgot to write them down in class or did not share them with you.
What: Student organized prayer service
Where: St Clement Catholic Church
When: Sunday, November 22, at 5:00 pm (1700 hours)
Sophomore students should arrive between 4:30pm and 4:45pm in order to lead the service.
Who: 10th grade Faith For students from St Clement will present passages from the Books of Wisdom with their reflections. All are welcome and invited to join us!
Why: Faith Formation classes are vital in creating an active prayer life and strong faith foundation in our youth. They are also required for students wishing to be Confirmed in eleventh grade. According to the objectives set by the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese, all 10th grader Faith Formation students are expected to plan and participate in a prayer service using Hebrew Scriptures. This helps them to explore the Scriptures and gives them opportunities to apply the Word of God to their lives and value systems. In addition, we are honoring our parish’s patron, Saint Clement, whose feast day is this week.
Wear: Appropriate “church” clothes. The class requested that peer presenters not wear jeans or jerseys but instead dress up a little to show their respect for the event.
Thank you for supporting your child’s growth in faith through the PRE program. Their catechists are certainly blessed to see their hard work.
Catherine St Pierre
