FORMED for the Week of January 3
FORMED highlights three features each week. You can watch, learn from, and grow in your Catholic faith.

This week's picks are God's Doorkeeper: St. Andre of Montreal, How to Pray, and Prepare the Way of the King.

Something New in January
Don Dolindo, one time spiritual director for St. Padre Pio, received from Jesus the words of the Surrender Novena. It is a prayer that is especially timely now, when world events feel out of control and we are trying to grow in trust and abandonment to God’s providence. This novena is all about letting go of the outcome you desire and letting God manifest His will.

Beginning Monday, January 11, look for a different prayer each day (on our website HERE) through the 19th. The novena will also appear on our Facebook page.

What's New With Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
After 18 months of planning and training, and a summer filled with the generosity of our parishioners to help set up the Atrium, our program began in late October 2020. While the pandemic has affected the number of participants we anticipated this year, we have been able to meet weekly (and safely) with three little ones (aged 3,4 and 5) on their faith journey. The fruits of those meetings are already being seen!
