Teachers and students Made Self Introductions
Topic:Tragic and historical importance of 9/11. Praying for the deceased. Topic: Sept. 4th Canonization of St. Mother Theresa of Calcutta. The dispenser of MERCY in the modern world. (None knew her in the class). Instructions and guidance for 2016, 12th grade CCD program. Designed “to strengthen to defend you and your faith, both will be attacked”. You will be out of your home away from your parents. God has no place in the modern social world, everything else will be made attractive and freely available. Instead, your responsibility is obeying Mk 16:15, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature”. Read, Mk. 14:27, Mk. 13:13. Instructed to make notes on topics that were taught for sharing with junior students as arranged and share with anyone who comes across.
This is the year for preparation to get strengthen in your faith, for you will be attacked, your faith will be attacked and you will have a lot of peer- pressure, influences to undesirable behaviors. Parents who know about the addictive activities will always worry about their children. You will be out of your home away from your parents. It is a free world for anything and everything attractive available except God. He has no place in the modern social world.
All of you will have your faith shaken, for it is written
You will be hated by all because of my name; but the one who perseveres to the end will be saved
