Special Religious Education
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus selects his 12 Apostles giving them special authority to preach and heal the sick. He did not send them alone. He sent then out two by two, and gives them specific instructions to take nothing with them for the journey, except a walking stick, a pair of sandals and one tunic. The Apostles trusted everything Jesus told them to do.
By virtue of our Baptism, we are called to trust Jesus and in his name tell people about his love for us. But he doesn’t expect us to do this mission alone. He wants us to work with others. Our Church is a community of disciples who teach people about Jesus and helps others in Jesus’ name.
As a family watch video in its entirety and ask each other this question?
How will you share Jesus’ mission as his disciple?
Family Prayer: Jesus, help me to listen, hear and share your word. Amen
As a community concerned with the process of education for our young people, we turn to the family as the primary source of passing on the faith. We attempt to form families in the faith for this generation and the next. For more information and to register your family, please call our Office of Family Faith Formation at

From Our Director of Faith Formation:
My dear families,
I pray that you are all well. I understand that these are stressful times full of anxieties and
worries. Please remember that God is always with you, open your hearts to our Lord and
receive the message of love, hope, compassion and mercy that the Lord is offering through His
grace to those who seek Him. So, therefore:
Do not fear; I am with you;
Do not be anxious; I am your God.
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.Isaiah 41:10
Please know that I miss all of you and am praying for all of you. You are the domestic Church
and what a better time to pray as a family. In your children’s bilingual book “Mi Fe Catolica”
there are prayers you can pray as a family. I encourage you to set up a prayer space in your
home where you and your family can pray an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
Your servant in Christ,
Bertha Keenan, Director
