The people at Illustrated Children’s Ministry are offering free faith formation resources during this time of stress. They are mostly in the form of coloring pages emailed to you each week. If you sign up using this link they will begin sending you the coloring pages right away. Have no fear of them filling your email with other things, you will not be added to any other list and after this is over they will delete your email address.

Please share your colored pages via email with Paul Davis at pauldavis@pflc.org and he can share them with others.

We have been approached by Harrison Medical Center. They are in need of reusable face masks for their staff. The current Covid-19 crisis is finding medical centers around the country and the world with shrinking resource supplies. Reusable masks are used in many parts of the world.

The staff at HMC found a pattern that will meet their needs. It has 2 layers of fabric and a barrier layer can be inserted between the 2 fabric layers. The hospital is providing the inserts. Staff can wash the fabric masks and replace the barrier layers with fresh inserts.

For more information, download the link, the pattern, and the instructions here.
