A stay is also a rope or a cable on a ship that runs from the hull to the mast providing support, stability, and strength. "These third year disciples...will provide support, stability, and strength to the good ship St. Therese, helping the winds of the Holy Spirit to fill the sails.“ (Find out more about the STAY program in our Summer 2018 edition of The Little Way Magazine:

The Lord's Day — Sunday Gospel Reflections

The Lord's Day — Sunday Gospel Reflections (40)


Go deeper into the Sunday Gospel, and make "keeping holy the Sabbath" a more important part of your life and a practice in your family, household or community.

One way that we strive to do this in St. Therese Institute's faith formation program is by inviting our students to participate in a weekly "The Lord's Day Celebration".

In the Jewish tradition, the new day begins at sundown (you'll see this echoed through into the Catholic tradition of having a Sunday Mass on the Saturday evening, for example). Our Lord's Day celebration begins at Saturday's supper with a short time of prayer, a reading of and reflection on the coming Sunday's Gospel reading, and then grace. After supper, a prayer of thanksgiving is said. The reflection on the Gospel is given either a student or one of our formation team. To bookend the Lord's Day, another short time of prayer precedes the Sunday supper grace, and again a prayer of thanksgiving follows supper.

Our director of Assistant Director of Formation, Nicholas Pierlot, explains more in the above video.
