Extra, Extra! Read all about it!

The parish pastor discovered it. The director of evangelization and catechesis for the archdiocese encourages it. And, most important, the parents and children like it.

We’ve mentioned Sacred Heart Parish in Norfolk, Nebraska a couple times in the past months and are pleased to see the end-of-their-first-year-assessment published in their diocesan paper.

Heidi Snitchler said she enjoys the new “Family Formation” effort because she is learning more about the Catholic faith even as she teaches it to her children.  “It’s opening my eyes as to how important my involvement is for the kids to learn,” said Snitchler, whose children attend public schools in Norfolk. “We go over terms and concepts in ways that help me communicate it to my children.”   Snitchler said she is pleased to be involved – both for her children and for herself. Her husband, Eric, is not Catholic, but he is involved in the lessons and is learning, too, Snitchler said.  “We’ll be back next year,” she said.
