RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & SACRAMENTS DURING SHUTDOWN

SUNDAY MORNING RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

We miss you already!   Though we are prevented from gathering in our building, we can still pray, learn, and grow together.  Please take this time to stay safe in your homes: remaining at home not only protects you and your family, it helps us stop the spread of COVID-19 in the community.  

There are some fantastic resources on our website:  St. Monica is live-streaming Mass every day of the week; FORMED is an online platform for Catholic movies and programs for kids and adults and is currently available free for 40 days;  St. Monica is assisting with breakfast/lunch for pick up six days a week (for youth under 18 years) and with financial assistance for any one needing groceries.  You can find all that on this website.

While this time is undeniably difficult, it can still be a moment of great grace.  We hope you can find time for silence, for prayer as a family every day, for Sunday Mass online - and in it all, the comfort and guidance of our loving God who never leaves us to find our way alone, who gives us peace that the world cannot.

There are a few very helpful resources listed below - I hope you enjoy them!!

God bless you!  Mary Jo Thomas-Day, Director of Religious Education

 

SACRAMENTAL PREP - for Confirmation or Eucharist

We do believe we have a plan for the celebration of First Communion.  Letters will be sent to all St. Monica Sunday Morning Religious Education families and St. Monica School Families in mid April.  We will also post more information here in the coming weeks.
