Weekly Lenten Reflections for FP Parents

The Adult Faith Formation team is sponsoring a weekly Lenten Reflection posted here. Each week, a link to the readings and a brief reflection written by different FP parents will be shared. As Ignatian Companions on this Lenten journey, we look forward to deepening our faith together.

Ignatian Companions: A Parent-to-Parent Evening of Reflection

Date: Tues., March 19

Time: 7 - 8:30 p.m.

Place: Student Life Center


Did you sent your son to Fairfield Prep because you want him to get into a good college? Because he needs the brotherhood of a single-sex school? To provide him with opportunities you never had? To encourage him to deepen his relationship with God in his faith tradition? To ensure that he becomes a well-rounded person?


Whatever your reason(s) for entrusting your son to us, nothing could have adequately prepared you for being the parent or guardian of an adolescent. As the adage goes: We Plan and God Laughs.


But, fear not! You are not alone with regard to life's surprises, frustrations, ups and downs, and unrealized expectations: You have companions on this journey. Four current and former Prep parents will comprise a panel that will share their "lessons learned" regarding adolescence and their sons' FP experiences, entitled: "My Kid is not Perfect. My Life is not Perfect. What Does this Say About Me? Where is God in This?"
