First Communion Class—2019: We are now taking registration for next year’s First Communion Class that will begin in September 2018 and end in May 2019. If you plan to have your child make First Communion next year, please fill out a registration form in the RE Office. (All families with children making First Communion next year must fill out a registration form.) For those families with second graders next year attending St. Joseph Elementary School, your child will not be required to attend the regular weekly Sunday RE class at Holy Family. First Communion preparation will be done at the Catholic School. In the Spring 2019, we will bring the RE and Catholic School children and parents together for a few meetings since both groups of children will be making First Communion together at Holy Family Church in May.

The cost is $35 per person, which pays for personal protective equipment needed for the class. The parish will pay the $35 fee for the volunteers. Jason Adams, the Parish Council President, will have an information and sign up table in the Gathering Space and 19th-20th after all Masses.
How our Catholic Community Benefits for the Diocesan Development Drive: Hospital Ministry provides pastoral care for patients in hospitals. Chaplains are available for the distribution of the Holy Eucharist and for the Anointing of the Sick.
The Lay Ecclesial Ministry Formation program prepares laity to assist clergy in parishes and missions, as well as to serve in other ministries of the Chruch in Utah. The program offers participants formation in the four traditional areas: theological study, spiritual development, human resources skills and supervised pastoral experience.
Adoration: “How little faith you have! Why did you falter?” (Mt 14:31) Few, things please Jesus more than a deep, abiding faith in him. When we believe firmly enough in him to trust him, to commit ourselves to him, he is greatly pleased with our faith. Our faith may be tested at times. When the winds of life blow violently against us, when the cresting waves threaten to engulf us, our confident cry, “Lord save us!” will not only please Jesus greatly, but it will bring an immediate rescuing response to our need.
