COVID-19 Virus Update: Alive in Faith
While our "in-person" Faith Formation opportunities are currently on hold, Father Tom is making every effort to reach our parish families through the blessing of digital platforms. This opportunity to build our domestic church by engaging in televised masses, catechizing at home, praying as families and praying for (and with) our global neighbors is unique, but we are dedicated to being right beside you in this journey. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continually update this page and may God bless you.
***RELIGIOUS ED IS CURRENTLY BEING TAUGHT AT HOME FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR***
Parents should have the packages that were mailed with the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies for April and May and the "What the Church Believes" book to work with the children at home. Parents may click on the link above to access materials and updates. To assist parents in teaching, Pflaum has provided this training video on how to teach the lessons at home.
Parents should continue to check their email for supplemental materials. As always, families are encouraged to watch online masses and use the prayer booklets sent home. As always, Kelly is available by cell phone or by emailing email@example.com to assist in any way.
To help us bring faith alive in our homes, Joe Paprocki of Loyola Press has created these awesome one-minute Pop-Up Catechesis videos that give suggestions on everything from Praying at Mealtime to May Crowning at Home.
Click here (or on the picture to the left) to view these short segments which he will post Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for the foreseeable future.

Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist
Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of the Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
