ALL OTHER CHILDREN & YOUTH FORMATION CLASSES ARE NOW ON SUMMER BREAK! Formation (Sunday School) will resume on August 26th, when we will be embarking on our huge, parish-wide God’s Story series!
For God’s Story, children and youth will still go to all of their age-appropriate classes. This will be a fantastic time as all of us—literally everyone—will learn the same lessons each Sunday as we work our way through the story of the Bible!
CHRISTIAN FORMATION | 10 am FAITH AND LITERATURE Saint Michael Chapel TODAY: Jodi Picoult’s “Small Great Things”, with
Elizabeth Lang ‘There is a fire raging, and we have two choices: we can turn our backs, or we can try to fight it.’ When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.
