Following the recent Eucharistic Procession involving Prince of Peace, St. Ignatius, Christ the Good Shepherd and St. Edward, we promoted the use of the Advent Family Guides developed by each of those parishes for use during Advent.
The Family Guide below is a document you can use with your household or small group which includes resources, activities, and pictures/videos.
Parish Guides from:
- Prince of Peace English | Spanish
- St. Ignatius English | Spanish
- Christ the Good Shepherd English | Spanish
- St. Edward English | Spanish
Next year, during the Lenten season, Prince of Peace will host the seven-part “Jesus and the Eucharist” small group study and will be planning involvement in the Eucharistic Pilgrimage when it passes through Houston in early Summer.
More information will be forthcoming on this webpage and in the bulletin and eNews as plans are finalized.
