"Attend, my people, to my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in story, drawing lessons from of old. We have heard them, we know them; our ancestors have recited them to us.
We do not keep them from our children; we recite them to the next generation, the praiseworthy and mighty deeds of the Lord, the wonders that he performed.
God set up a decree in Jacob, established a law in Israel: What he commanded our ancestors, they were to teach their children; that the next generation might come to know, children yet to be born.
In turn they were to recite them to their children, that they too might put their trust in God, and not forget the works of God, keeping his commandments" (Ps 78:1-7).
As we can read in Psalm 78:1-7, we are charged to pass on the "mighty deeds of the Lord" that have been handed on to us. Parents, grandparents, and parishes all have a responsibility to share the stories of faith. From the youngest preschooler to the oldest of our parishioners, we are all called not just to grow in knowledge of our faith, but to share that faith with one another. At St. Pius X and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary parishes we do this through varied programs available to parishioners of all ages.
