High Schoolers! Do Not Miss Father De Celles Talk Tonight!

October 26, 2014 News

Father De Celles is offering a series of four talks for high school students. These talks will take place in St. Raymond’s parish hall on Sunday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:45pm. All high school students are invited and encouraged to take part in these talks which are scheduled for:

  • October 26 (TONIGHT)
  • December 7
  • February 8
  • April 19

Parents are free to sit in on these classes if they choose, although this is not expected or preferred. The information given and discussed during these talks will be based on the teachings of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Topics for these discussions will include abortion, contraception, marriage, and homosexuality.

Although Father intends to be as discreet as possible, respecting the modesty of your child(ren), these topics will necessarily involve some very direct language. It is with this in mind, that mandatory written parental consent is required for students planning to attend each of these talks. A separate permission slip will be sent out prior to each talk.   The topic for discussion on October 26 will be abortion (this will also include some discussion of contraception).

Please complete permission slip (located under high school events under the Youth Apostolate on this site) and have your child(ren) bring it with them to the talk.

For those interested, we will be having a high school only bon-fire social directly following the talk tomorrow evening, from 7:45-8:30pm. Feel free to bring some fix-in’s for s’more makin’!!

If you do not attend the talk, you are expected to go to Religious Education class during your regularly scheduled time.
