Happy Friday!                 

I hope you all are doing well. Attached you will find a MFYG (Mini Family Youth Group) outline to do as a family before or after a meal. This outline includes: prayer,  questions, short message and video along with a family activity.

This is a great tool to use for your Sundays or other family activities. I will be sending them out on Fridays of each week of quarantine.

The total time frame of this is 15 -25 minutes.

This is the video you will watch following the reflection.

Dear Parishioners, 

Even though things look different this Easter, I am still very excited to celebrate Christ rising from the tomb with you!

April 12, 2020 – Easter Sunday

Good Morning! Happy Easter!

Pray: Regina Caeli

Call: Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
Response: The Son you merited to bear, alleluia,

Call: Has risen as he said, alleluia.
Response: Pray to God for us, alleluia.

Call: Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
Response: For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray.

God of life, you have given joy to the world
by the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through the prayers of his mother, the Virgin Mary,
bring us to the happiness of eternal life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjT7OvQMlQg

Challenge: Spend time thinking about what it would have been like to see the empty tomb. Rejoice in the Victory of Christ, and share the joy of the early church with someone in your life today. 

I am praying for you! Happy Easter! 🙂

Peace be with you,
Lauryn

April 10, 2020 – Good Friday

Good Morning,

This Good Friday seems different, doesn’t it? MFYG (Mini Family Youth Group) is different today as well. It’s a bit more serious, deeper than we have gone so far. Please know that hours of prayer have gone into this, prayers for you and whatever you are going through.
