Heart of the Church Institute

The Heart of the Church Institute has developed a learning opportunity for parents to help them fulfill their responsibilities as the domestic Church. Many parents do not know where to begin when they encounter this language of the domestic Church, and this learning opportunity promises to dispel intimidation and create avenues to spiritual growth.

This learning opportunity will begin on April 25 and continuing over the next 6 Mondays beginning at 7 pm. Participants will learn: (a) What the phrase “domestic church” means; (b) home prayer space ideas; (c) simple ways to teach kids how to pray; (c) Scripture significance behind five popular symbols found in a domestic church; (d) Christ at the center of family life

Please refer to the Heart of the Church Institute website (www.heartofthechurchinstitute.org) or contact Nicole Boner (nicole.c.boner@gmail.com) with any questions. Cost to participate is $20.

Enduring Faith

A documentary film on the faith, perseverance, and inspiring example of Indigenous Peoples across North America – available for all to watch at kofc.org/enduringfaith

Indigenous communities across North America have a rich and vibrant testimony to share – both past and present – including the witness of their faith. Enduring Faith: The Story of Native American Catholics dives deep into the rich contribution of Native Americans in the tapestry of the Catholic faith. Produced by the Knights of Columbus as part of its Faith Formation and Native Solidarity initiatives, the 60-minute documentary offers a missing piece to the greater story of Catholicism on the continent and a beautiful example of how Christ reveals himself through the uniqueness of every culture. A must watch with the family, classroom, or faith group. Available to all at kofc.org/enduringfaith.
