Looking for new ideas or resources to engage your faith or your ministry? Here are our weekly curated links, including offerings in each of the following categories: Prayer for the Home, Educational Opportunities, Resources (for ministers, educators, parents, etc.), and Flourishing and Fun.

Prayer for the Home: 

Evening Prayer Live from Taizé
Each evening at 8:30pm Central European Time (CET / UTC+1), join a small group of brothers from the Taizé community for prayer and music via Facebook live. The Taizé community is home to a particular musical style, found in well-known pieces like “Jesus, Remember Me” and “Eat This Bread.” Its variety-within-repetition encourages peaceful prayer and reflection.

Educational Opportunities: 

How Deep the Mystery: Formation on the Mass
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the celebration of the Mass, Liturgy Training Publications is offering a free four-part webinar series led by liturgical scholar Sr. Joyce Ann Zimmerman, CPPS, beginning this Thursday. The first installment is entitled “Mass is a Celebration of the Resurrection” and registration is required for each installment.

Dialogos de Cristiana Esperanza
Este seminario en línea gratis ofrecido por Liturgy Training Publications, ofrece conocidos ponentes y teólogos que comparten ideas y guían conversaciones sobre temas y prácticas concretas, como nuestro llamado al ministerio y a mantener la fe durante tiempos difíciles.

Grow a Mary Garden
The month of May is traditionally dedicated to Marian devotion, and what better way to honor Our Lady than with a Mary Garden? Get outside, bring color and fragrance and life and beauty to your yard, and grow closer to our Blessed Mother all at the same time.
