Lifelong Christian Formation for Sunday, May 26.
Adults: On May 26 the focus of Dunstan's Dialogue will be the LECTIONARY: WHY DO WE READ WHAT WE READ EACH WEEK?
Did you know that the lessons we read each week at worship were a product of Vatican II? Jeff will lead a conversation about the development of the cycle of readings that we use each week for our liturgies. How the lectionary was created and some of the recent changes will be shared. He will also talk about how each of us might approach and read these texts as preparation for our worship experience each week.
Nursery Care: Nursery care will be available throughout the Lifelong Christian Formation time beginning at 9:45 a.m. and continuing through the late liturgy. The nursery is located on the classroom level at the far end of the hall if entering from the front hall or the base of the stairs if entering from the double doors near the pulpit.
Children: This week our children's classes will be "the teacher's choice" - so find out the favorite bible stories of your children's teachers by asking what the lesson was learned. Children are welcome to attend formation classes on any Sunday. Parents please bring your children to the classrooms and pick them up after the formation time is completed.
Youth: The Coffee House is open this Sunday for youth in 6th -12th grade in the youth room. Treats and beverages will be available. Come and check in with the other youth of the parish and hear about what is happening in each other's lives.
