Virtual Food Drive
Apr 1 – Apr 30 all-day

We know that our parishioners are incredibly dedicated to supporting the ongoing ministry of the Riverwest Food Pantry. Although the pandemic has required the cancellation of all food drives for RWFP (including the physical donation of the “Item of the Week” at our parish Masses), we would like to support the Community of Generosity with a Virtual Food Drive! It’s easy! Instead of purchasing your Item of the Week and bringing it with you to Mass, all you have to do is visit https://yougivegoods.com/familyoffourparishes-april, click on your parish, and then SHOP! It really is that easy… and will have a lasting impact on supporting the needs of our neighbors. Let’s see what we can do! If you have any questions, please contact Laura Hancock at . Thank you for your generous giving!!

UPLIFT Families Wednesday Program
Apr 21 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

“Uniting People Living in Faith and Truth” (UPLIFT) Family Formation Program is our religious education program serving the parents and children of Old St. Mary, Our Lady of Divine Providence, SS. Peter and Paul, Three Holy Women, and the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Our program is designed to support and equip PARENTS to be the primary educators of the faith for their children and assist and UPLIFT families to live in the fullness of our Catholic faith as disciples and followers of Jesus Christ.

UPLIFT Families meetings will be entirely online using Zoom until we are able to safely meet as a group and families are comfortable meeting in person. We offer the program on two different days of the week: the Wednesday evening program (6:30-7:30 pm) and the Sunday morning program (10:30-11:30 am). You will choose either the Wednesday or Sunday Program. The content of both programs will be identical.

Each year we focus our teaching on one of the Four Pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The idea is that if a child begins our program in K5 or 1st grade and stays until 8th grade, the child will have covered the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church two times and thus deepening his/her understanding of the faith. The Four Pillars are: the Sacraments, the Creed (what we believe), Christian Prayer, and Life of Jesus (morality). Last year all families learned about the seven Sacraments and this year the focus will be on learning and practicing – prayer. We hope to deepen your families’ understanding and experience of the different prayer practices in our faith. We will continue to use the Family of Faith book series published by Sophia Institute Press and families will receive a Child’s Activity Book and Parent Book to use during the meetings.

First Reconciliation and First Communion:
Children in 2nd grade receive these additional sacramental preparation opportunities to deepen their understanding and love for the sacraments: First Reconciliation Workshop (Jan/Feb), First Communion Retreat (March), and First Communion Rehearsal & Banner Making (April). Children are expected to attend all sacramental preparation activities with at least one parent/guardian.

Nova Middle School Group
Apr 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Nova Night, our middle school youth group, is best served in person. So much of the middle school youth group is centered around games, faith related activities, and hand to hand learning. However, this year we are temporarily postponing our typical Sunday evening Nova Night, and pivoting to a near-monthly middle school accompaniment over ZOOM. This monthly group will serve to accompany and supplement the UPLIFT Family middle school group. This hour-long evening will revolve around faith topics, but more focused on relationship building, games, and forming a community of our youth! You can see more details and RSVP at tinyurl.com/novanight2020.

For any questions, feel free to reach out to Nino Rebholz, Associate Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, at .
