Dear Parents,

It is difficult to navigate social media and apps on your child’s devices. There are also many topics that as parents we may not feel equipped to talk with our children about from a Christian perspective. There is a great resource called Axis, https://axis.org/. There are free materials and if you join even more available if you decide to subscribe. One of the free resources is called the Culture Translator. It is an email that you will receive weekly that demystifies teen culture, shares new slang and the latest viral media. I would highly recommend this resource. It is never too soon to get in touch with what your children either are encountering or will in the near future.

 

It’s so Good to Sing Again! Advent Carols and Cookies on Wednesday, December 1

Join us for great music, treats and time with friends! It’s been 2 years since we’ve had this event so it will look a little different this year, but we didn’t want to miss another year.  Join us for Cookies and Carols right after the 6PM Mass.  Members of the parish and school are invited to attend this festive celebration of music and fellowship.  Music will be led by Jacob Bancks. This is a family friendly event. Please join us, even if for only part of the evening. For more information, check the parish website or contact Jen Brooke 505.3509 davstpauldre@diodav.org

Reminders
