GRADE 3: Fishers of Men—Church & Holy Spirit
In the Acts of the Apostles, we learn that the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. They spoke the Word of God with boldness, and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit, the Church grew in numbers. The message is clear: the Holy Spirit is actively involved in the life of the Church and its members. The story of Pentecost is only the beginning of the account of the Holy Spirit’s presence in the early Church.

The Religious Education Program is gearing up for the next installment of our ever popular Vacation Bible School this summer and are looking forward to singing, dancing and laughing with all our friends as we learn about the many ways God's Love is present in our lives. After such a stormy winter, we are all eager for the first signs of spring, but that doesn't mean we won't miss the snow and ice as we seek to "beat the heat" this summer. That's why, this July, we invite you to embark with us on an icy expedition to the heights of Everest, [more]
A Big Thanks! We are so grateful to all our religious education students and parents who donated so many tasty treats to our bake sale and volunteered to help set-up or sell items after Mass last Sunday. It was a beautiful thing to see 🙂 Our bake sale was a huge success! We raised $551.87 for the interfaith Community Dinner program hosted at the First Congregational Church in Stoneham. It's so good to support people who are our friends and neighbors, especially the elderly on fixed incomes who regularly attend the dinners. Save the Date!

The month of October is dedicated to the Blessed Mother. Catholics are encouraged to pray the Rosary together as a family. The Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (National Director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith from 1950 to 1966) developed the World Mission Rosary.

The MCA World Mission Rosary comes with a booklet that explains the colors of this Rosary, and offers age-appropriate mission reflections for the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous Mysteries. Saint Patrick Religious Education participates in the Missionary [more]
