As we continue the Easter season and finally welcome spring to New England, we are pleased to invite all to Read, Reap, and Rise to New Life! Registration for the Catholic Biblical School is now available. This month’s OEEC newsletter includes an informational video and registration forms, as well as a guest blog from a current CBS student, The Fear in “Fear of the Lord.”

The OEEC continues its outreach to the millennial generation this month with a blog speaking to young people, Calling All Millennials. Additionally, the Faith Formation division of our office is now on Facebook! Be sure to “like” us for more information about programs, events, and resources serving our parishes.

The updated calendar for our Catholic schools can now be found at the bottom of the newsletter as well as some end of year faith resources for our teachers. Be sure to check it and keep abreast of any changes!
