Family of Faith – October 2019

Welcome to Family of Faith!

2019 – 2020 FAMILY OF FAITH CALENDAR

God gives us all the directions we will ever need to get to Heaven! Living the Beatitudes and Ten Commandments each day will get us on our journey. We are made in God’s image; we have an immortal soul that was made for eternity; and Heaven is our ultimate goal. On the journey through life, we must try to avoid sin so as to stay on the right path.

Family assignment for the month of October:
  • Learn the “Morning Offering” prayer! Your Catholic Home, page 10 in the Parent Guide (PG).
