Gospel at Hogwarts 2020

Following many postponements and cancellations of events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Holy Family was finally able to host its Gospel at Hogwarts 2020 event in April 2021. Students attended an outdoor, in-person event at Holy Family to visit Diagon Alley to “shop” for school supplies. They walked through shops such as The Leaky Cauldron,  Potages Cauldrons, Madame Malkin’s, Ollivanders, Flourish and Blotts, and Honeydukes then visited with Hagrid around a campfire. On the following evening, students entered the Zoom of Requirement for an evening of scripture and magical stories followed by more conversation with the Professors. Plans are already underway for the next event in November 2021. For more information about this free community event, please contact Children’s Ministry Director Jolene Johnston. jjohnston@hfec.org

Youth Group Campfire Compline

On Sunday evening, the Holy Family youth group met in person to share in evening prayer together. Socially-distanced and wearing masks, the youth and adults sat around the fire and brought a beautiful day to an end with Compline. Deacon Cathy Scott came back to visit and discussed new beginnings. Inspired by her trip to Iona, she utilized rocks to show the release of burdens and welcome positivity into their lives. The group was also able to witness the start of a beautiful sunset and also watch a fox wander through the outdoor worship area. For more information about Youth Group, contact Director, Ruth Everett, at youthministry@hfec.org.
