Every week as our profession of faith we sing the song “Yes Lord, I Believe”. Now John Burland wants us all to help him make a music video for the song! If you would like to help us out, go to the link below to download the music track, release form, and instructions for submitting a video of you singing the song. We will be gathering submissions until August 14th. We can’t wait to see all your videos! Link for submission instructions: https://drive.google.com/drive/folder…
This Fall, Miss Heidi will be partnering with Pflaum Publishing Group to provide short Gospel Reflection videos for their Children Celebrate and Gospel Weeklies programs! Each 5 minute video will have an explanation of the Gospel, a story about a saint, and a closing prayer. To order the Fall Children Celebrate! program, Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program, or to pre-order the 2020-2021 Sunday Missal for Young Catholics, call 800-543-4383 or visit https://bayardfaithresources.com/. If your parish or school already uses Children Celebrate! or Pflaum Gospel Weeklies, contact them to request that they share the videos with you.
Thank you for sharing your children with us this weekend! May God bless you and your families, and may He keep you safe in His loving arms. See you next Sunday!
