Children's Faith Formation
June 29, 2020
Hello families~It's almost July and there are many things to look forward to this month!
PRAYER CHALK EXPERIENCE: Little Flower is offering a unique and first time prayer experience. We welcome all parishioners to join in while physically distancing. The “PRAYER CHALK” will take place outside on Tuesday, July 21st from 7-8pm in the parish parking lot. All are welcome to use your creativity to create a space (parking space) for prayer. Each person (or family) is designated a parking space and invited to use sidewalk chalk as an avenue to share faith and prayer with others. When our time ends, we will walk around (physically distancing) to each space and experience a new form of prayer. If you are interested in attending, please contact Michelle at the office. If you would like to donate sidewalk chalk, feel free to leave it at the Main Entrance of the Offices. Thank you for your support.
TRAVELING RETREAT: The Stark North Region (Little Flower, St. Paul and Holy Spirit) parishes have collaborated and are offering a “Traveling Retreat” for the parishioners. The retreat dives into the Corporal Works of Mercy and offers parishioners the flexible option to travel at home or on the road at their convenience. It can be done in one day or stretch it out over time. Whatever works for your schedule. Here's the PDF TRAVELING RETREAT

True Vine atria Miss Monica
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd came about through the work of two Roman Catholic laywomen in Rome, Sofia Cavalletti and Gianna Gobbi. They were inspired by the educational principles of Maria Montessori, also a Catholic. The materials they prepared for children, since 1954, were based on the Bible, the Roman Catholic liturgy and sacraments, Tradition, and Church teachings.
Children at Little Flower begin faith formation at age 3 in what is called "the atrium," a community in which children and adults live together a religious experience which facilitates participation in the wider community of the family, the church and other social spheres. The atrium is a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation and prayer. The atrium is a place in which the only Teacher is Christ; both children and adults place themselves in a listening stance before his Word and seek to penetrate the mystery of the liturgical celebration. Students in 5th grade on Sunday mornings use the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies to guide their weekly prayer and study.
