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: 

Pray the Rosary with the Dominican Order
Beginning on October 4, and concluding October 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, you can join Dominicans throughout the world in offering a “triduum of penance and prayer.” Pray the Rosary over these three days, and offer small sacrifices with love for a personal intention, and for all who have been affected by the pandemic.

Reza el Rosario con la Orden Dominicana
Del 4 al 7 de octubre, únase a los dominicanos de todo el mundo para ofrecer un “triduo de penitencia y oración” por la fiesta de Nuestra Señora del Rosario. Rece el Rosario durante estos tres días y ofrezca pequeños sacrificios con amor por una intención personal, y por todos los que han sido afectados por la pandemia.

Educational Opportunities:

Wade decision.
