It is very difficult to say what the calendar for your child may look like since calendars will vary significantly from one parish to another and based on the age of your child. Please contact your parish for a copy of their calendar.
Below is a brief description of why the parish calendar is so important – and links to sample calendars (one for elementary age children and one for a youth calendar.)
A calendar is really about Sacred Time.
As Catholic Christians we are called by Jesus to reach out to others. “Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take as your heritage the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, lacking clothes and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me... In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:31-40)
This is our commission in faith. The time that we are given to accomplish the mission of the Reign of God is indeed sacred time. To understand the development of a calendar as simply a planning tool is to forget our essential mission. God has chosen to save us through the process of history. God formed a covenant with our ancestors. God joined us in time as one of us — it is this commitment by God to our time which hallows it and makes it sacred. We have been chosen as collaborators with the Holy Spirit to reconcile the world to God. The parish calendar is the outward sign of how the parish will serve the Reign of God in the coming year.
