RELIGION - Theme:  Jesus Gathers Followers,  This Sunday’s Gospel: Mark 1:14–20

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus calls four fishermen to become fishers of people. They respond quickly and follow Jesus. They share in his work of spreading the Good News ofGod’s love. This is a call that comes to all on this Sunday, and we all need to respond with thesame joy and enthusiasm as the first disciples.

Seeds (Preschool): Your child learned that Jesus calls people to belong to his family. We all follow Jesus by fulfilling our responsibilities in daily life. Talk to your child about ways to be loving or forgiving, and point out times when your child acts as a a member of God’s loving family.

Theme:  The Whole World Welcomes Jesus

This Sunday’s Gospel: John 1:6–8, 19–28

During Advent, we prepare for Christmas by listening to the people who prepared the way for Jesus’ coming. In this Sunday’s Gospel, people ask John the Baptist who he is—the Messiah or a prophet. John answers by identifying himself as a voice in the desert, crying out, “Make straight the way of the Lord.” He insists that someone more important than he is coming. The Gospel asks us to recognize Jesus among us by answering his call to be our best Christian selves.

Exploring the Gospel Message

Seeds (Pre-K): This week, the class learned to tell the Christmas story. Ask your child to share his or her booklet and use it to tell the story to your family. Remember to keep the real meaning of Christmas—God’s coming to live with us—a most important part of your family’s preparation for the feast. Don’t let a day go by without some reminder that you are preparing for the celebration of Jesus’ birth.

Theme:  Someone Powerful and Good is Coming

This Sunday’s Gospel: Mark 1:1–8

In Sunday’s Gospel, John the Baptist urges people to prepare a smooth, straight road on which God can come to us. Isaiah’s words of

comfort to the exiled Israelites assure them and us that we can count on God’s forgiveness. Jesus’ words call for us to turn our lives around and

make sure that we have an open path for God to enter our hearts. Note: Tuesday is the Feast of our Lady of Guadalupe, a day to celebrate Mary

our Mother..

Exploring the Gospel Message

Seeds (Preschool): Advent and Christmas senthe message that Jesus is the Son of Gochose to live among us as one of us. Your child

learned how Jesus and his cousin John learned he same stories about God that we all hear in he Advent readings. Talk about how stories

help us learn. Then ask your child to tell you the story about Juan Diego meeting Jesus’ mother—Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast day is

RELIGION

Theme:  Advent Helps Us to Celebrate Christmas 

This Sunday’s Gospel: Mark 13:33–37

The Church’s three-year cycle of Lectionary readings begins again on the First Sunday
of Advent. We start reading from Cycle B, which is organized around Mark’s Gospel. Throughout Advent, we also hear the prophet Isaiah’s words in the First Reading. On this rst Sunday of the Church year, Jesus speaks of his coming in glory. He cautions us always to be ready for him, to live each day in the light of God. Note: Friday is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a holyday of obligation.

Exploring the Gospel Message

Seeds (Preschool): To very young children, the time before Christmas seems to drag on and on. Younger children respond well to simple waiting activities, such as Advent calendars
or Advent chains that are done with some ceremony every day. Make sure that whatever you use with your young child is linked to
the coming of the Christ Child, not just to Santa Claus. 

The children will make a Christmas/Sleep chain. Each night before your child goes to bed, they snip off one of the links.  When there is only one link left, there is just one more sleep night left before Christmas.

The children had a fun week preparing for our Thanksgiving party with Kindergartern Tuesday.  They are so proud of their vest, headbands and necklaces.  I can't wait or you to see the.  It would be very cute if the girls wore braids or pulled their hair back.  Don't worry if it doesn't work.

We reviewed letters & numbers this week. The children are starting to identifying Capital/Lowercase letters at a faster pace. Keep working with your child, it is definitely showing in their work.

Blessing for a beautiful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. I thank God everyday for the beautiful children and families He has given to me this year.

This Sunday’s Gospel: Matthew 25:14–30

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells a pointed story about three servants. Their master entrusts them with varying amounts of money. Two of the servants double their money, but fear gets
in the way of the third servant. All he can do is preserve what he has. The challenge for all of
us is to recognize the gifts we have been given and our responsibility to care for those gifts. That means caring for the world we live in and caring for one another. It also means having the courage to be our best selves.

Exploring the Gospel Message

Seeds (Preschool): Help your child recognize his or her special talents. Encourage your child to use these gifts and share them with others. Spend some time having family members make pictures of themselves using one of their gifts— reading, playing sports, cooking, gardening, playing, or caring for another. Post the pi

THEME:We Want To Be Ready fo God At All the Times

Seeds Activity Book: page 6

This Sunday’s Gospel: Matthew 25:1–13

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus uses the parable of the bridegroom and 10 girls to tell his disciples to remain vigilant. The parable describes some of the girls as foolish and some as wise. Those who were ready for the bridegroom went into the wedding feast. The bridegroom, however, didn’t even acknowledge those who didn’t prepare. Jesus teaches us to always be prepared and to do good things. We never know when he will return. This is an opportune time to recognize that when we make good choices, we are preparing for Jesus’ coming.

Exploring the Gospel Message

Seeds (Preschool): Ask your child to explain “Anaya’s Bad Day” and, especially, how
the story ends. Make a list with your child about the things that Anaya missed out on because she wasn’t ready. Discuss ways that you get prepared for something, especially what footwear might be necessary for various activities.
