Children Lean What They Live Prayer

Here is the prayer that Steve Frazer read on December 10:

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, she learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, she learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, she learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, she learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, she learns to like herself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, she learns to find love in the world!


Social Ministry Commission Opportunities

Chris Pollock and Ken Cornish are currently involved with the SMC.

Our Social Ministries mission statement is to encourage, support, and demonstrate the Christ-like servant leadership of IHM parish members in their efforts through prayer, advocacy, education and financial and material support of those in need.Our commission has 18 sub committees who work in soup kitchens,collect Christmas gifts, work on environmental issues, do twinning projects with Batahola and Our Lady of the Mountains, collect canned goods for food pantry, etc.Our four major social justice goals this year are servant leadership,Parishes for Life, preventing foreclosures, and working with the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops on immigration issues.We need individuals with a heart that embraces Catholic Social Teaching which is to name several themes to respect all life, option for the poor, protect our environment, and global solidarity. We could do more work if we had more hands. We meet the 1st Monday of the month at 7:15 and would love to meet before hand with anyone interested in joining our commission

    No Regrets – Ways to Make Time for Your Children

    Team 5, unlike the Bengals, hope to salvage their season with this dynamic performance.

    Live every day if it were your last!  How do you, as a father, balance your faith, family and work in this hurried world, every day? Learn how father’s just like you are living a daily life of no regrets: making more memories with their family, deepening their faith and coming home from work on time!

    Sample letter to your child that will be referenced during the presentation:

    Hi!  I wanted to write you a quick note and also ask you to do something that will really help me.

    First, I want to tell you just how proud I am of you! You are a great daughter, sister and a friend to so many. You have the gift’s of being creative, artistic, passionate and honest. Among the many things that you do so well, I really enjoy watching your artistic creativity, the simple little doodle drawings, the photographs and the master pieces such as the ballerina that is hanging in our Family room. You have a real flair for fashion and creativity for trying new foods and for making great meals. It was neat to see you cooking the pasta dinner the other night and knowing you wanted specific items like the Four Cheese Sauce. I am proud of you for trying sports and want to congratulate you on making the Varsity Volleyball for High School. I am proud of you for wanting your friends to hang-out and enjoy watching movies and socializing in the basement. I am proud of your effort in school and know you are going to try harder this year as good grades get you into a great college, plus auto insurance is cheaper for those that have great grades! This school year will be great as a Sophomore, with many new things in store to still try at school. Yes another new thing is you will be driving the car! You have made a big difference in mom & dad’s life! Dad really loves you and wants so much for you to realize your dreams in life.

    I also want be a good Dad, but sometimes I don’t always know what to do, so I wrote out some questions that I put in this letter.  I know you are a teenager and you will be sixteen in April and things are not like when you were 6. Would you do me a favor and spend some time thinking about the questions, and then answering them for me?  I would really appreciate it.  I want to spend more time with you and I want you to enjoy it as much as me. I respect you want to hang-out with your friends and that is cool too. But I want to do things that you would really like.

    You are a great daughter, and I am proud to be your Dad.  If you could answer the questions by this Sunday, give them to me and I will read them or if you just want to tell me the answers in person that is ok too.  Then we can begin to talk more about things for this upcoming school year!  I’m looking forward to it!

    I love you,
    Dad


    • What one thing Dad does really bothers you and you want Dad to stop doing?
    • What one thing have you wanted to do with Dad, but have never done?
    • What one thing would you really like Dad to teach you, or tell you, or do with you that he never has?
    • What have you done with Dad in the past that you really enjoyed, but don’t get to do enough?
    • What one thing is really on your mind that you want me to know about?

    Church Decorations

    On Thursday, December 16 at 7PM, the Church will be decorated with the Christmas Tree, garland, wreaths, etc.  This is an excellent opportunity for families to help out our parish and make it festive for the Christmas Season!
