Love Sunday Pancake Breakfast and Mass
Sunday, February 12
This year is our 22nd Love Sunday Mass. You can find more information on the attached ticket order form. Recently we combined the Pancake Breakfast and special Mass into one event - a wonderful opportunity to spend the morning enjoying each other’s company with breakfast, then attend Mass with our children participating.
All students are asked to sell tickets - invite family, and friends. The breakfast will run from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and it is open-house style.
Our students will be helping in the following ways:
Grade 9 – set up and serve from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
Grade 8 – serve and clean up from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. (you will make it Mass on time)
Grade 7 – bring a donation of 2 bottles of orange juice
Grade 6 – bring a donation of 2 bottles of another juice (cranberry, apple, etc.)
Grades K-5 – make a valentine card at home and bring it to be given to a resident of Curtis Home or visit the card table and make one at the breakfast

Meriden Roman Catholic Special Religious Education Program
The Religious Education program provides formal religious instruction for children in grades K through 10 who attend public schools. The programs are in accord with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the National Catechetical Directory and other documents published by the Bishops of the United States. This instruction provides opportunities to learn about God, to celebrate the sacraments together, to develop a caring attitude for the people in our neighborhoods and the world, and to build community within the parish. Opportunities for Community Service Hours are available in this regard.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)
Any person with no active church affiliation who is interested in becoming

is designed to familiarize inquirers with the life and message of Jesus
Christ. Sessions usually begin in early fall to give a general overview
of the Faith. These are followed by a period of more formal presentations
on Catholic doctrine and practice. Those who wish to become members of
the Church prepare themselves through prayer and reflection on the scriptures.
Most often, reception into the Catholic Church is celebrated during the
