Always Here For You

It is not easy to grow in faith and close to God. Even in a large and vibrant parish, maybe even more so in a large and vibrant parish, it can be difficult to find a spiritual home. What ministry helps me to find new perspectives? Where can I pray together with others? Where do I find the understanding, I am looking for?

 

For all of these, please know that we in the faith formation department are always there for you. Call or write us for a chat and we will listen and accompany you towards your next steps.

Many blessings,

The Faith Formation Team:

 

                           Suzette Sornborger, Pastoral Associate & Director         Dominik Gnirs, Assoc. Director

  • ff portal 2Do you find it hard to live and love in God’s word? Connecting with a small group of people about faith, matters. It is a great way to dialogue with others, immerse yourself in your faith with prayerful support, and encourages accountability needed for personal spiritual growth. Below are just a few ways to engage:
  • Mothers of Monica [MOMs] Ministry: All Moms are welcome to join this special ministry, Tuesday nights at 7pm. Last week, Erin S. brought us some joy! We learned a new prayer to remind us that GOD is the other side of our heart. For those who could not join us...remember those best friend necklaces that split down the middle? You kept one side and the other went to your "best friend." Well, make your own shared heart with GOD. Making one half of a heart with one hand place it on your chest (this side represents you). Then form another half heart on your chest with your other hand (this is GOD and our faith). Close the two hands to form a heart. Then for the final act of the prayer...press your palms together in pray at your heart. Remember, we always have GOD beside us in our journey!  To find out more about Mothers of Monica, go to MOMs

  • Fishers of Men have been meeting weekly on Zoom, sharing the faith and their lives. Even before the workday starts, these men have been coming together for prayers and conversation on Wednesday mornings.
  • Women of St. Monica: meet every Wednesday night via Zoom at 7pm for about 1 hour. This wonderful gathering of women started at the beginning of the pandemic as a place and way for women to come together and share their hopes, fears, cares, and concerns through the vehicle of prayer.  They have several facilitators that take turns leading the women in a prayerful experience of scripture and faith sharing. Through this fellowship with God and each other, they are making new connections and journeying together in their call to be women of God. Join us and let’s share our journeys together. Wednesday evening at 7pm.  Click Here to Register ot Attend!
  • Morning Prayer In morning prayer, we lift up our community and the entire church as well as consecrate our day to the Lord. Join this small community to greet the day with morning praise – prayer with the Psalms of David from the Hebrew Scriptures, petitions and prayer. Morning Prayer

Faith Formation Age 3-Grade 8

ff portal 3

 Today is the celebration of the Ascension of the Lord, when Jesus was taken to heaven on the fortieth day after Easter and the disciples go forth to preach as Jesus commanded. Jesus also calls us to “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” From this moment on, it is up to us. Jesus asks us to be his hands, feet, eyes, and body to bring about the Kingdom of God to everyone.

 

 

Living our Faith in this Easter Season

As we begin to enter into summer, let´s continue to be messengers of hope and love for our family, friends, and neighbors. We offer a few thoughts to ponder:

  • With your family, determine how you keep God present in your life while you go about your regular activities and responsibilities. School, work, parish work, recreational activities are ongoing. How do you keep the light of God shining in your life while all about you is questionable? How do you keep from being distracted? Jesus reminds us to love and care for others. Discuss with your family.
    • Love is God – Begin each day by thanking God for all the good things in your life.
    • Love is Family – How do you show your family that you love them? How do you find ways to show your family members and friends how much you appreciate them?
    • Love heals – How can you help people in our family or neighborhood who are sick and not feeling well or suffering?
    • Love does what is right – How do you stand up for what you know is right? Do you listen to your heart and mind and tell the truth?
    • Love forgives – Sometimes it is hard to forgive. How do you forgive those who have hurt you?
    • Love is service in action – How often to you put others first before your own wants?
