A Place For SamOn October 29th Shawn Elizabeth George, an inspirational author and presenter, spoke to all of our Faith Formation classes, grades 1-6, at Marlborough Elementary School Community Room. Shawn wrote a book called "A Place For Sam" about a puzzle piece who is trying to fit in and it gives children hope and reassurance that God made them all special and that they all have a place where they "fit in".

All Saints' Day (November 1)

Celebrate this feast day in which we honor all the Saints by checking out a book from our library's Saints section.

All Souls' Day (November 2)

Commemorate all of the faithful departed by selecting a book from the Library's Prayer, Scripture, and Grief & Loss categories.

At the SJF Parish Family picnic, our Lending Library was re-launched and dedicated to our long-time parishioner, Robert Vontell. With Bob's passing, he and his family asked for donations to be made to the faith formation efforts in our parish.

In addition to helping our youth and adult programs, funds were used to update and purchase new books for our Lending Library for all our parishioners to access in building their faith.

Please stop down to see the newly-launched Lending Library (beneath the stairs) with easy to access color-coded categories, a new beautifully handmade bookcase, a new sign with Bob's dedication and a wonderful selection of books for all ages to help build and support your faith.

Please come "check it out "
