From the General Instruction of the Liturgy of the Hours
Public and common prayer by the people of God is rightly considered to be among the primary duties of the Church. From the very beginning those who were baptized “devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the community, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers” (Acts 2:42). The Acts of the Apostles give frequent testimony to the fact that the Christian Community prayed with one accord.
The witness of the early Church teaches us that individual Christians devoted themselves to prayer at fixed times. Then, in different places, the custom soon grew of assigning special times to common prayer, for example, the last hour of the day, when evening draws on and the lamp is lighted or the first hour, when night draws to a close with the rising of the daystar.
Classes began on Sunday, September 9, 2018 from 9:45am to 10:45am followed by 11:00am Mass. Any students from age 4 through Confirmation (usually 8th grade) who are attending a public school or homeschooled, are welcome to register. Students making their First Communion or Confirmation will need to attend classes for two years to receive these Sacraments.
Safe Environment will be taught on Sunday, September 9 & 16th.
