FAITH FORMATION and CONFIRMATION UPDATES


We are busy preparing for the start of ‘new’ classes in September!
As with almost everything during these uncertain times, our program will be changing to home-based learning rather than on-site at the church. The faith formation team is developing many plans with more information coming soon!

 
The new registration form can be found on St. Christopher’s website:
http://www.stchristophersnchili.org/faith-formation.html


As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email or call:
lori.murtaugh@dor.org or 594-1441 ext.105


Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement as we look forward to this unique upcoming year!


EUCHARIA MINISTRY NEWS


This weekend we’re highlighting Care-A-Van Ministries, a mobile church ministry established in May, 2000 by Paul and Bridget Ohlsen for street outreach. The 3 trucks and 1 bus are the tools to bring food, clothing, compassion, love, hope, and prayer to many areas of the city of Batavia.


We are working on knitting and crocheting 350 adult scarves for them for this December. Yes, you read that correctly…....350! PLEASE, if you knit or crochet, consider helping us to reach our goal. The scarves don’t need to be fancy – just warm – 5” wide by 45-50” long – any color! Sheila or Joanna will gladly pick them up!!
