Family Liturgies with Children

During this time resulting from the COVID-19 when Sunday Masses are not occurring, you are invited to gather as a family for communal prayer each Sunday based on the Liturgy of the Word for that day. Let us reflect personally and as a community on the Word of God so that it may echo within our heart and bear fruit in our lives.
