In the past at a First Communion Parent meeting and a Catechist Formation evening, we viewed videos provided by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee (Mass - The Heart of the Matter; A New Mission for a Missionary People.) These videos came about as a part of a synod held within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, and all are encouraged to explore that site to gain a new energy to renew their faith. This link will bring you to these videos and to the overall website. Please free free to explore and share with family and friends.
