Since we cannot safely meet in person for our parish faith sharing groups this Fall, I would like to try a virtual faith sharing opportunity through zoom meetings for those who are able to join in.
From the first week of October until the second week of November, I invite you to join in a faith sharing group focused on the Holy Eucharist. We will be reflecting on the series on Formed.org call “Presence” which is in English and Spanish (https://watch.formed.org/presence).
TO SIGN UP:
1) Go to formed.org/signup
2) Select “I Belong to a Parish or Organization”
3) Search for “Holy Infancy Church and School”
4) Enter your Full Name and Email address
5) Check that email account for a link to begin using FORMED
There would be 6 sessions with videos about 30-40 minutes in length. One of the episodes is one hour long and can be split up into two sessions of 30 minutes. Then there will follow a faith sharing experience led by a leader of each group for about 30-40 minutes. The group could also pray the Holy Rosary together if they wish and are able for the month of October.
Sorry, this is not in Portuguese. But there is a possibility to watch and reflect on a series in Portuguese about the 7 Sacraments at Canção Nova’s website:
The groups can pick a time to watch the video individually in their homes and then join in a zoom session together to discuss based on some reflection questions provided. This can be on Wednesday evenings or any time or day that works best for each group. The main idea is that the parish is focused on the Holy Eucharist together during these weeks between the first week of October until the second week of November.
If you participated in a faith sharing group previously, your leader may call you if they are able to organize your group. If you are interested and are not contacted please email the parish at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest and we will try to get your united to another small group.
