Mass at Home COVID-19 has stopped all of us in our tracks. One of the most challenging parts as Catholics is our inability to receive the Eucharist. For families, this creates another large hurdle to overcome, “How do we keep our children engaged and our family alive in the Faith?” Lynch Development offers us a very good simple, attractive and practical guide for families to prepare for and participate in livestream Masses.

Novena’s – a novena is a nine day period of private or public prayer to obtain special graces, to implore special favors, or make special petitions.  (Novena is derived from the Latin novem, meaning nine.)  As the definition suggests, the novena has always had more of a sense of urgency and neediness.  Have one emailed or texted to you or choose your own.  Click here to get started.
