Circles of Grace for Parents

It is required each year that the schools and churches of the Diocese offer parents information pertaining to creating safe environments for children. The Diocese provides these flyers for parents to review. The information on the flyer is set by the Office of Child and Youth Protection and changes each year.

Gospel reflection question

Mk 9:30-37: The apostles misunderstand Jesus’ words about his death and resurrection. They go back to an old argument about which one of them was most important. Jesus reminds them that if they want to be first, they must be the servant of everyone.

What are the qualities needed to be a disciple of Jesus? Could Jesus use you as an example for a disciple?
