Parish Table Talk

  • Lent is coming!  Yes, it is still the Christmas season and we celebrate Epiphany tomorrow, but we know you are already planning for Lent.  Busted Halo has a wonderful 2 minute introduction to Lent.  You can email this to your parents, play it at your Youth Ministry gatherings, or post it on your parish website, Facebook or Twitter pages.  How will your parish reach out to your families during Lent?
  • Mercy Now:  Leisa Anslinger has just published this free resource.  We have added it to our resources page along with other resources in the Year of Mercy category.  Please give us your feedback on how you might use this in your parish as we continue to celebrate the Year of Mercy!
  • Annapolis 101 (sponsored by the MD March for Life Committee) will be January 30th.  See their facebook page for more details.
