FALMOUTH---A new initiative at the Parish of the Holy Eucharist in Falmouth aims to help adults with their understanding of Catholicism so they are better able to respond to children when difficult questions about God and the faith arise.
“Youth have great questions and the answers aren’t always prepared and ready on the spot,” said Georgette Dionne, director of faith formation at the parish. “We hope to help adults in these situations with the Faith Formation Hotline.”
The hotline is now active and available for anyone to utilize, not just adults but children, teens, and young adults as well.
“As we know, faith formation is lifelong, so any question is welcome,” said Dionne.
The answers to the questions will come in a video featuring a member of the clergy or faith formation staff at the Parish of the Holy Eucharist (Holy Martyrs Church, Falmouth; Sacred Heart Church, Yarmouth; St. Gregory Church, Gray; St. Jude Church, Freeport).
The process is simple. Questions can be submitted via:
- Email with “Hotline” in the subject line,
- Twitter with #POTHEHotline,
- Instagram (www.instagram.com/parishoftheholyeucharist) with #POTHEHotline, or
- the parish hotline website.
Several answer videos have already been created on the website, and links to additional resources for families to further explore the answers will also be provided.
“We hope this is something that Catholics find valuable as they look to enhance the faith lives of their children or themselves,” said Dionne.
