November Week 1 Faith Formation
Welcome to November and Happy All Saints Day!
We have a full month with many special feast days! Please view the following link for our November Parent video as we look at the questions; “What is Original Sin? What is grace? How did God continue to offer His love and mercy to mankind after the Fall?” https://youtu.be/0uMaNOtiMP0
Remember, this program is first and foremost about your own formation, and secondarily about helping you to teach your children. They will learn the faith better from your witness than through any structured activity. We’ll continue to do our best to share several resources through the month to help you achieve this goal.
