And in the consecrated life we live the encounter between the young and the old, between observation and prophecy. Let s not see these as two opposing realities! Let us rather allow the Holy Spirit to animate both of them, and a sign of this is joy: the joy of observing, of walking within a rule of life; the joy of being led by the Spirit, never unyielding, never closed, always open to the voice of God that speaks, that opens, that leads us and invites us to go toward the horizon. ~ Pope Francis, Homily for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on the 18 th World Day of Consecrated Life, Rome (February 2, 2014). Y en la vida consagrada vivimos el encuentro entre los jovenes y los ancianos, entre la observación y la profecía. Que no veamos estos como realidades opuestas! En vez de esto, que permitamos el Espíritu Santo a animar los dos, y un signo de esto es alegría: la alegría de observar y caminar con una regla de vida; la alegría de ser guiado del Espíritu Santo, nunca inflexible, nunca cerrado, siempre abierto a la voz de Dios que habla, que abre, que nos guía y nos invita a seguir hacia el horizonte. ~ Papa Francisco, Homilía para la Presentación del Señor en el Día Mundial 18 de la Vida Consagrada, 5

Infant Baptismal Preparation requirements Classes in English - Instructor Deacon Michael Holmes. Parent/Godparent classes are required if you have not attended Baptismal Preparation classes in the past 2 years. Please contact the church office if you have any questions, or to register. Requirements to attend Baptismal Preparation classes at St. Catherine s: Parents must be registered at St. Catherine Labouré Roman Catholic Parish in order to have their child Baptized in our parish. If you are not members of St. Catherine Labouré, you must provide a letter from your pastor giving permission for you to attend the classes here. Parents must bring in the ORIGINAL copy of the child's birth certificate to the office. A copy will be made and the original will be returned to you. Parents must fill out the Baptismal Registration paperwork BEFORE attending their first class. The first of the two required classes for parents of children (birth to 6 years of age) are offered here at St. Catherine s on the third Thursday of each month. The second class will be scheduled with Deacon Michael at the conclusion of the first class. Please note: Deacon Michael, after consulting with our Pastor, Fr. Fred Le- Claire, has the authority to determine that more than two classes are necessary before Baptism can occur. Children who are older than 7, must attend CIC classes, and according to Canon Law, cannot be Baptized as an "infant."
