Well if we didn't know what to give up for Lent, how about we give up almost everything?
I wanted to write you all a letter instead of a text message.
Every day I'm lucky. I get to attend daily mass while live streaming it online and in that mass, I pray for you all. I hope you all are keeping safe and secure. This is definitely a weird time to live in. No mass for Easter, no Palm Sunday, all online.
Faith Formation is following the same trend. Officially we are no longer gathering for Faith Formation. With the schools on lock down in the state, we can not gather with the students but, we are transitioning to online Faith Formation.
We had 8 classes left before Covid. So starting on Monday after Easter we are going to do faith formation online. Every week, the kids will get an assignment from our website. olphparish.net. Then they either have to email it to us, or send a picture of it via the REMIND app. The sacramental classes, the books and videos are all online. So they can pick up right where you all left off.
The other classes, (K, 1, 4, 5, 6) the books have a digital subscription that they can do online. I should be getting those links today.
If you have anything in terms of lessons or ideas you want to pass along to the students email them to me; firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is anything I can do for you all please don't hesitate to ask.
When this is done, we are going to have a feast!
