EXCITING NEWS!!!

Every year the parish gives a gift of a reflection book for Lent (and Advent).  This year, the gift is the FORMED program.  It’s like a Catholic Netflix, but even better!  It has movies, audios, e-books, study programs, faith formation…  It’s for all ages  AND  it has Spanish content, too!

After every Mass this weekend (2/27 & 28), Teresa will be in the Gathering Space, again, to show the types of content FORMED has; to help people upload the app on their smart phones; and to talk thru the process of connecting on your computers at home.  Bring your phones, ipads, tablets and laptops with you!

Masks and spacing restrictions apply
