Virtual Narthex

“Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together…but encouraging one another.”

Hebrews 10:24 – 25

Welcome to the Virtual Narthex Grow Group

Worship with us at the 9am Mass!  After Mass, we will join together in small groups for discussion of the Mass and time to build community digitally.  We hope you’ll join us.

This is open for everyone, whether you’re a young adult starting out in life, have a family with children young, old, or out of the house or you’re the wise elderly.

For those with families with young children, we have an activity for them/questions specifically for them to keep them engaged.


How do I join?

After the 9am Mass, Father will invite everyone to join him in the Virtual Narthex Grow Groups via Zoom.

  3. Please look for the “Unmute/Mute” control on the bottom left-hand side of the zoom meeting screen.  Please familiarize yourself with this feature because we will be prompting you to use them.
  4. Due to a large number of attendees, we will initially have everyone muted when you join the meeting.  You may unmute yourself when taking turns to speak. If there is a lot of background noise, it would be helpful if you mute yourself if you are not talking.

One of the coolest parts of the Pentecost story is that the Apostles started speaking different languages and people understood them. Take that idea and learn something in a different language together as a family. Here’s a website that has “I love you” in 100 different languages. How many could your family learn?


Pentecost is known as the birthday of the Church. The Holy Spirit comes in power and fills the Apostles to go out and tell everyone about Jesus and His love for them. The Holy Spirit can sometimes be a forgotten part of the Trinity but He is a powerful force of love and guidance that we all need. Pray to the Holy Spirit this week, as simple as saying “Come Holy Spirit!”


  1. The Holy Spirit is represented by different symbols- fire, a dove, clouds. Which one is your favorite symbol? Why?

  2. What do you remember from the Readings today about the Holy Spirit? What do you know about the Holy Spirit?

  3. Today is considered the Birthday of the Church. Do you have a special birthday memory? What are some ways we could celebrate the Church’s birthday today?

  4. Over the last few weeks we have heard stories about the Apostles sharing about Jesus to everyone, with the help of the Holy Spirit, how can you share about Jesus this week? Pray to the Holy Spirit this week to help you be a follower of Jesus!
