Preparation to Receive forgiveness
Each Monday we will send out a link to this webpage. It will include some videos to watch and some activities.
We encourage you to watch the videos as a family and go through the activities together. It’s a way of placing faith at the centre of the family. In total each week should be about 20-30 minutes. You have a week before the content is updated. So be sure to plan ahead. We have found that having a day and time each week in the schedule can help. After the content has been updated, there isn’t a way to go back over the videos and mini activities.
Being forgiven by God is one of the greatest experiences.
God will go to great lengths to help you know his love and mercy.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the greatest moments in life.
This week we are looking at the structure of the Mass. There are so many wonderful things going on at Mass and everything has a meaning behind it. Let’s look at some of the different parts together.
Next week is the break from school so there aren’t any videos that week.
Overview of the Mass
Sarah tests Ben’s knowledge of the Mass with a series of rigorous questions. Will Ben answer correctly, or will he be forced to face the consequences?
The Introductory Rites
Out on a picnic, Ben asks Fr. Tom what the most amazing thing he ever experienced was. This question sparks a great conversation about how incredible the Mass is.
The Liturgy of the Word
Ben is very nervous about being a lector for the first time during Mass. Fr. Tom helps calm his nerves by explaining what happens during the Liturgy of the Word.
Let’s join together in prayer:
Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, save that of knowing that I do your will.
Send us Your Snapshot
I hope you have enjoyed the videos for this week.
