Dear Navigators and families,

Navigators Live! continues during our stay-at-home-pandemic time. I am grateful for all who have joined the Zoom meetings, as it has been good to see the teens, bring them together, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.

I will continue to offer Navigators Live! this Monday and Wednesday, May 4 & 6, both times at 6pm (two iterations of the same program), to have a more reasonable number of participants in each. My plan is to continue to offer this format one more week, so the final session will be May 11 & 13 – Mondays at 6pm and Wednesdays at 6pm. The Catholic Community of Billerica continues to be committed to continuing to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ as best we can.

What is Next?
Mr. Carbrello is putting together a teen leadership training, to be done through Zoom in May and June, to prepare our Church community for whatever the future is bringing us – a new springtime. It is my hope that all of our Trailblazer teens will join me for this new endeavor!

If you missed past Navigators Live! sessions, 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 (or use the blue button below)
2. Email me in advance if your teen wishes to do one of the readings

Experience Mass at Home!
Billerica Catholic’s YouTube Channel – Fr. Paul’s recording for the Second Sunday of Easter, from St. Andrew, is available now.

Also consider utilizing Catholic TV: https://www.youtube.com/user/CatholicTV  or http://www.catholictv.org/

Looking for something different? Contemporary Christian Music? 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.

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.

Happy Easter!

Coordinator of Religious Education
