Domestic Church Resource 2020
“God’s first language is silence. Everything else is a translation. Faith is opening and surrendering to God. The spiritual Journey does not require going anywhere because God is already with us and in us.” 
- Fr. Thomas Keating
We are now well into the third month of our journey with COVID 19. We have had to reinvent our lives in a very short time. And staying at home and social distancing are part of our daily existence.
Part of the new way of being also includes our inability to come to The Basilica, physically. All the routines and rituals that come with that have been suspended. We have had to reinvent what it means to be Church while unable to gather in church.
Much of “being” Church today has moved out of our churches into our homes where we are invited to rediscover the domestic church.
Our Basilica staff has collaborated on this resource which is intended to assist you in your discovery of the domestic church. We realize that many of us already feel overwhelmed by the demands and limitations of staying at home and social distancing. We don’t want to add to the stress. These are just some suggestions and offerings should you want and need them.
Also, we are not only offering things for you to do, we also invite you to allow us to assist you through this journey with COVID 19.
