This year's Family Faith Formation is happening, but with some changes:
1. Jeanette Houle has joined the parish staff and will be leading our Family Faith Formation program this year. Chris Carmody will continue to work with Jeanette and all of the families. Please welcome Jeanette to our parish community when you see her!
2. We will be gathering together on Sunday mornings AFTER the 10am Mass. Currently the 10am Mass is at St. Mary's Church, and so everyone will be together each week.
3. When you come to the 10am Mass, everyone will have their temperature taken and check in with their family name and phone number. You will then be ushered to a pew on the right side of the church. At the end of Mass, when everyone else is being ushered out, all of the families will stay seated, and we will have Family Faith Formation when the church is empty.
4. Family Faith Formation will run for the 30 minutes after the 10am Mass ends.
Family Faith Formation is scheduled to begin on Sunday, September 20th! We look forward to seeing you all then. Please note that although we have a start date, we will not be able to have Family Faith Formation after Mass until Lynn is no longer designated as a 'red' city based on our new covid cases. Until we start getting together after Mass, we hope that you will continue to use the weekly Faith Formation Handout, which is in the bulletin each week.
In anticipation of beginning Family Faith Formation for this year, please take a moment to print out this year's registration form. You can either mail it to the office (8 South Common Street Lynn, MA 01902) or drop it in the offertory basket at Mass. Click HERE for the registration form.
