Faith at Home

Faith at Home

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has disrupted our lives in many ways.  Many of the things that we considered "constants" around us have suddenly changed.  Even St. Patrick's Masses and other activities have screached to a sudden halt.  The one "constant" that has not changed is Jesus!  He is their for us no  matter what.  He is the constant by which we all can rely in these challenging times.

Even though we can't celebrate Mass together, or attend Faith Formation in person, with God's gift of technology we can continue at home.  With this in mind, we have put together a curated set of resources so your family can continue their  journey with God. We are blessed to have many families that have already started to continue their Faith at Home journey.  If you find a good resource or have an idea to share, please email it to FFD@sp4c.org.  We would also invite you to share it with us on Facebook.
