Session 14a – Live, Online Zoom meetings – held April 13 and 15 – notes:

Dear Navigators and families,

Last week we had a very good turnout of Navigators in the two Zoom meetings offered on Monday and Wednesday. My plan is to continue to offer this format at least through the end of April – Mondays at 6pm and Wednesdays at 6pm, two iterations of the same program, to have a more reasonable number of participants in each. As we navigate a new normal in this season of global pandemic, the Catholic Community of Billerica continues to be committed to continuing to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ as best we can.

If you missed Navigators Live! on April 6 or 8, the recordings are available by contacting me. You will receive a link to an mp4 movie file in my Dropbox, not a link to YouTube, to respect the privacy of the teens. The video is only accessible with the link I will provide.

Due to an increase in security and the soaring popularity of Zoom, I am going to start using the password protection feature offered. Please use the links contained in the email to join the Zoom meetings…

Notes for parents:
1. I will have one or more adults joining this online meeting with the teens. You are welcome to join as well with your Navigator.
2. The online meeting will be recorded and stored within the BCRE files, only accessible through the email links provided in future messages.

Please have your teen prepare for Navigators Live! by doing two things:
1. Download this week’s Gospel Weekly HERE
2. Email me in advance if your teen wishes to do one of the readings

Experience Mass at Home!
Billerica Catholic’s YouTube Channel – Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday are all available.

Perhaps you have been utilizing Catholic TV:  or

My family and I have enjoyed Mass from Church of the Nativity outside Baltimore, Maryland – a Catholic Church that has been a leader for a decade now, including publishing books and hosting conferences – they offer a contemporary music-style Mass, with drums and modern music. Check them out at:

How Can the Church Serve You?
Know that if you would like to talk, I can be available through Zoom, Google Hangout, or FaceTime on Sundays all day, or Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings.

Where’s the Body? – ODB Films
(This is one of Mr. Carbrello’s favorites!)
This video highlights the classic arguments for why Jesus’ body may have gone missing, apart from the Resurrection, and also addresses each one in response. The story line about the cat is a humorous embellishment and addition.
