Catholic Faith Formation and Education

The Touch of the Master's Hand (Adult, adolescent)
This video is a captivating discussion starter that speaks to the worth and potential of every human being. This film parable, based on the beloved poem by Myra Brooks Welch, follows the path of a precious, finely crafted violin that falls into unwanting and uncaring hands. It was about to be auctioned off for almost nothing until it received "a touch from the master's hand," which recovered and revealed its great value. A powerful, thought-provoking story that shows that life is valuable and that anyone can find renewal and begin again.

Training the Mass Server (Grades 4-8)
This video presents the duties mass servers perform in three parts. Part 1 explains how young people should prepare; Part 2 gives directions for serving during the Liturgy of the Word; Part 3, for serving during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Objects and terms that servers will encounter are explained. The video reinforces the value of this ministry and encourages young people to serve with willing hearts and minds.
