In an effort to provide opportunities for fellowship and to help families bring faith into their homes while we must remain physically distant from our parishes, the St. John-St. Paul Collaborative Religious Education and Youth Ministry team is piloting two Zoom events this weekend. On Sunday morning there will be a St. John Family Mass Faith and Fellowship event at 9:00am (click here to download the worship aid), and on Sunday evening there will be a Youth Ministry 5pm and Fellowship for our high school students. Plans for a future St. Paul Family Mass event are in the works as well.
