Session 13b – Live, Online Zoom meetings – held April 6 and 8 – notes:
Dear Navigators and families,
I was very encouraged to have almost 50% of the Navigators in last Monday’s Zoom meeting for our first Navigators Live! As we navigate (pun intended) how our lives are different 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 March 30, the recording is 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.
Note to parents: I will have one or more adults joining this online meeting with the teens. You are welcome to join as well with your Navigator. Also, the online meeting will be recorded.
Please have your teen prepare for Navigators Live! by doing two things:
1. Download the Gospel Weekly HERE
2. Email me in advance if your teen wishes to do one of the readings:
-Jesus’ Friends Turn on Him
-Romans Crucify Jesus
For the first time in twenty or more years, Catholic teens will not be delivering Easter Baskets to our elderly and low-income neighbors. While “Global Pandemic” is an excellent reason to postpone or cancel this service project, it is sad for those recipients who were looking forward to seeing our teens. Let’s be sure to keep those folks in prayer, who may be suffering in ways we cannot imagine.
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.
Billerica Catholic’s YouTube Channel – Did you see the Mass with Fr. Hal from St. Mary last weekend?
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-style Mass. Check them out at: https://live.churchnativity.com/
