COVID-19 On-line Spiritual Resources

updated October 5, 2020

For Families

Worship@home Do you have kids and you can't imagine them sitting through an online Mass? Maybe it's time you tried your own family worship service! Worship@home provides a step-by-step service for you to do with your family - includes music, the Sunday readings, a video to illustrate the readings, and discussion points so you can even reflect on the readings with your family. Check out the short video below to see how Worship@home works!

CathKids CathKids is a weekly interactive experience with a short animated video on the Sunday reading, questions to stimulate discussion, a simple activity, and prayer. It’s perfect for use at home. We used these videos at times during our parish faith formation program.  From now until June 30, CathKids is offering free access because they know that now, more than ever, spending time with the Lord and as a family is especially important.

For Everyone

On-line Mass

Prepare for the Mass:  During the COVID-19 outbreak, Living with Christ is providing  
complimentary access to the complete daily Masses texts and commentaries in digital format, to help families and individuals in their prayer life.

Our own Archbishop LeGatt will be offering livestreamed Masses, that you can find on the archdiocesan website 

Daily Mass is streamed on Salt and Light TV

Check out the Mass streamed from Church of the Nativity -- this is the "Rebuilt" Church that we are modelling our parish vision on.  The music is awesome - very upbeat "praise & worship" style.

 

Inspiring speakers: Here are a few of our favourite speakers.

Fr. Mike Schmitz and host Colin MacIver explore various topics and share their insights. Go to Ascension Presents

Bishop Robert Barron is offering audio homilies, blogs and videos from the Word on Fire web site.

 

Engaging Ideas
