We’ve hit that time of the year where it is easy to get overwhelmed with everything that’s going on, and frustrations with the virtual learning environment can easily mount. I ask for your continued patience and cooperation as we journey together. Many of our catechists are NOT professional teachers and they have stepped forward this year on a purely volunteer basis to assist you and share their faith because they love the Lord, and because they love the Church. There have been, and will continue to be, some speed bumps along the way, but let’s continue to keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, who is inviting us to a deeper relationship with him and with one another.

I understand that after a full day of virtual school, even 30 minutes for another virtual class can be “a lot.” I know it’s far from ideal and I can’t wait until we can be back together in person, but I ask everyone to recommit to the little sacrifices necessary to make this work for the sake of our children! I want to thank all those of you who have attended all classes this first half of the year and those of you who have been watching the recordings when you’ve been unable to attend live. I particularly want to thank those of you who have gotten creative in order for the kids to watch class from the car, or on the run while juggling extracurriculars!
