St. Brendan School Children Featured in a National FDLC Invitation

FDLC or Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions is a national commission that works in conjunction with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. This commission of ordained and lay ministers of the Church, have been established as a resource to implement liturgical catechesis and formation in all national dioceses for the spiritual welfare of local parishes. Our St. Brendan School children were featured in their most recent video invitation to a national meeting in Cincinnati, 2023 regarding "Masses with Children." 


The Sisters of Life and the McGrath Institute for Church Life teamed up with CampCampo Films to create an original 12-part video series based on the work of the Sisters serving women who are pregnant. Journey with the Sisters of Life as they explain what it means to walk with a woman who is pregnant and vulnerable. Learn what it means to deeply listen to and understand the heart of another, how to rejoice in the beauty of the individual person, and what it means to truly accompany someone into God’s life and freedom.
