Make Up Opportunities
FAMILY FORMATION (Grades K-6 and parents):
Next Monday, 3/23, we will have a large blue tote placed under the portico at Door B (The Gym Door). In this tote, each family will have their monthly family packet available for pickup - 24/7.
Please make sure to stop by and pick up your family folder at some point this week so you have them before 3/29
. Then, we will send an email on Sunday, 3/29 (our normal family session day), that will contain a link to the same talk Fr. Gene would have presented LIVE and in person - had our program still been held in the church. We will also link a video, cartoon, or some other resource to use to make up for the session your children will miss. From there, you will continue to work through your packets just as you do every month.
EDGE (Grades 7-8):
We will send an email on 3/29 with a link to a video or some other resource to watch to make up for the missed session. In the meantime, continue to complete the normal weekly online
lessons as outlined
1st EUCHARIST PREP (3rd Grade):
Please complete chapters 5 & 6 in your textbooks and watch the videos, found
. We will be in touch shortly regarding the retreat... more information coming soon.
YDISCIPLE GROUPS (High School) :
We are in the process of creating makeup webinars for you to watch at home. It is our goal that you can use these webinars to make up ANY sessions you have not yet completed. During the webinar you will be asked to write responses to the discussion questions. After you have completed ALL of your makeup sessions, you will be asked to turn in your written responses for credit. (
Please note that we are in the early stages of planning this makeup option and if you have already made alternative arrangements with your mentor and/or Colton, please continue with those arrangements
). More information regarding these webinars will be made available as soon as they are created!
DEAD THEOLOGIAN SOCIETY
(Post Confirmation & Young Adult)
Maddie will continue to create Powerpoint presentations of your weekly saints and share them via email, and the group will continue to offer up prayers for the souls in Purgatory, as is their charism.
Virtual Event Opportunities:

Everyone in Flocknote will be added to a new group called FORMED. Each week Annunciation will pull together resources on FORMED that correspond to our liturgical calendar or that are particularly appropriate. Our hope is that since we are unable to worship together as a community we can join together in an online community and enjoying faith-filled content. If you do not wish to receive these weekly notifications you may remove yourself from the group at Flocknote.com or simply type STOP to automatically be removed from all text messages.
Since public Masses have been suspended, following is a full list of parishes that offer live-streamed Masses:
Stay healthy and God Bless!!

The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you; you never forsake those who seek you, LORD.
