This Fall 2014, Holy Child Parish will continue our Great Adventure Bible Study Program with Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom, a study showing how Christ’s Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.
Study sessions will be offered running from September 2014 through March 2015. For more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Events are open to any and all Junior High Teens in 5th and 6th grade. There is no required attendance policy or special membership.
Teens are ALWAYS welcome to come to the events that interest them. This is why we offer a wide variety of events to meet as many needs as possible.

Faith through Actions
Open to All High School Teens of our Parish
Jesus spoke these words very clearly to crown, that what you choose to do for those around you, you do for me.”
Community service is more than just fulfilling a school or sacramental obligation. It’s not about how many ‘hours’ we do but how we choose to reach out to the world around us. It’s about helping to make a small difference in another person’s life. It’s giving a family who has been at the hospital all day long a chance to sit as a family and eat a home cooked meal that you prepared. It’s taking the time to reach out to our shut-ins who may not have anyone to help rake the leaves in the fall or shovel snow in the winter. It’s knowing that one peanut butter and jelly sandwich will be appreciated more by someone who is never sure where their next meal is coming from. It’s about collecting new back to school items for children who are in low income neighborhoods and may not be able to afford a new ruler or crayon set. It’s about putting our faith into action in the smallest of ways.
We each have a chance to make a difference within our family and our community. Each of us has the ability to change the world in smallest of ways through our everyday actions and out attitudes towards one another. We each have a chance to make a difference.
