Youth Contest

NEW CONTEST -- "40 Days of Merciful Love”

For the past 15 years, we have been inviting and encouraging use of the Catholic Herald in the classroom in Catholic schools and religious education programs in the Diocese of Madison through our Newspapers in the Classroom project. Copies of the Catholic Herald are provided free of charge to Catholic schools and religious education programs requesting them.

During Lent this year, the Catholic Herald is sponsoring a contest involving students in grades kindergarten through high school with the best entries being published in the Catholic Herald. The contest is called “40 Days of Merciful Love”. More information on the contest is attached.

Once a month during the school year, the Catholic Herald is continuing to publish Junior Saints, a special section introducing students to Catholics living their faith in ordinary and extraordinary ways. Students meet a new saint each month. They also learn more about Catholic rituals, events, and holy days of the liturgical year. One page of this section is devoted to what is happening with youth in the Diocese of Madison.

Thanks to all the principals, teachers, directors and coordinators of religious education, parents, and students for your cooperation and participation in the Catholic Herald contests.

We especially want to thank Margie Schels, a teacher at St. John the Baptist School in Jefferson, who has helped develop the ideas for these contests since 2003.

Feel free to contact the Catholic Herald office by phone or email if you have any questions. God bless all of you!

SAUK CITY -- Not all that long ago, one may have heard the words “computer programming” and had an idea what it meant.

One would picture someone typing letters, numbers, and symbols onto a computer and creating a program or application.

These days, “coding” is the more popular word for it, and it’s being taught in many schools.

How the church can welcome young families

Many people have assumed that once millennials started to grow older and have kids, a large number would return to the church or become more actively engaged. This has not materialized -- the numbers are troubling. And there are certainly many reasons why, from changing social norms to mistakes the church has made.
