Dear Parishioners and Leaders at St. Mother Teresa Parish:

Greetings of Christ’s peace!

During the COVID-19 crisis, God’s people especially need the Good News of Jesus Christ. As your pastor, I eagerly collaborate with you and other parish leaders to make this happen. I am asking you to pivot with me as we learn to embrace ELearning as our way to grow for the time being.

I asked our DRE, Thomas Howard, and Christy Condyles from the St. Barbara Worship Site and who works at LTP, to create this ELearning Table. It is a comprehensive tool that I believe can be used in a variety of creative ways to foster on-going faith formation at our parish during this crisis.

It is my hope that each ministry head will use this table to help your members to grow in their faith, their relationships and to stay connected with one another. Please simply share this table with your ministry members or find something on this table that captures their imagination and meets their practical needs. Then send the related links out to your constituents.

Follow up with a short discussion on ZOOM or WECHAT or another platform. Let’s make efforts to stay connected digitally and spiritually until the good Lord allows us to come together as a community again.

If you have any questions on how to make this critical pivot, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Howard at thoward@sttheresechicago.org. He would be more than happy to help you to best use these resources. Enjoy pivoting!

Please stay healthy and stay connected!

You are in my prayers!

Fr. Francis Li
