Youth Ministry Resources
NEW RESOURCE FORMAT!
We are excited to announce a new format to this web page! Based on your feedback we will be providing various options
for weekly faith reflection/activity for children. Our goal is to provide families with resources that are quick and
easy to use with a variety of different options for various ages: videos, crafts, reflections, prayers and activities.
Each week we will offer something for the Sunday liturgy that reflects the readings. Additionally, we will have other resources that touch upon other faith elements/stories. It will be updated on a regular basis so be sure to check in frequently if you can!
At the bottom of the page we will still have the format to conduct an at home liturgy with children should you prefer to do that. It will outline the format and each week will include a child friendly version of the Gospel story.
We hope you enjoy this new format and encourage you to contact Arden Ouellette to share your thoughts
or inquire about Youth Ministry and other sacramental matters.
Pentecost Sunday - May 31, 2020
Important To Know:
The Holy Spirit descends on the Apostles at they gather in an upper room, afraid of what to do next since Jesus has left them and ascended to heaven.
Holy Spirit comes upon them in the form of a flame of fire above their heads and gives them the ability to speak in multiple languages so they can teach EVERYONE about the Saviour Jesus
The disciples have courage and strength from the Holy Spirit to go out and spread the Good News of God to lots and lots of people - fun fact: in a short period of time they baptize thousands of people!
We call this event Pentecost because it was the festival of Pentecost, an important event celebrated by the Jewish people at that time.
This Lego stop motion video is a fun, up to date explanation of Pentecost focusing on the fact the Apostles could speak in many languages with the help of the Holy Spirit.
