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 If your parish or school already uses Children Celebrate! or Pflaum Gospel Weeklies, contact them to request that they share the videos with you. Continuing to produce our program has become increasingly challenging for us. Since March, my husband Mark and I have been voluntarily producing and sharing our free 25 minute Children’s Liturgy videos in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Please support us by becoming a patron at


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!
