Formed is like Netflix for your faith! This is an awesome resource for everyone in our parish. Go to Formed.org and create an account under Our Lady of Grace. It’s easy and free for you. There are: Bible Studies, children’s videos, lecture series, movies and much more. If your New Year’s Resolution is to take a deeper dive into your faith this is a great place to start. The link below is a sample of the quality content you find here.
Pope Francis has proclaimed that this is the year of St. Joseph. Please find below an article about this from the Vatican News.
Have a wonderful week!

INTRODUCING Prayer PODS
Each family participating in Faith Formation this year will be placed in a Prayer Pod for the year. The Prayer Pods will have 4-5 families in each pod. All we ask is that you PRAY for the families in your pod every week. In this time of disconnection let’s create some higher connections!
If you would like to deepen the relationship with the families in your pod you may want to meet on Zoom to introduce yourselves to each other. You might want to create a Padlet (super cool bulletin board app) and post prayer requests, videos, family pics, inspirational quotes each week. You might want to get together (via Zoom) to pray the Rosary once a month. You might want to do a service project together – First Fruits Farm is always looking for help.
