Tiny Thomists: Catholicism for Families with Young Children

St. Stephen is very excited to announce we are partnering with the Dominican Institute to provide families with young children a new way to share their Catholic faith - on the go! It works with the ebb and flow of constant activity and allows families to ground themselves in short, 5-10 minute blocks of Catholic prayer time that can be infused in your everyday life! 

Just head over to https://dominicaninstitute.com/shop/tiny-thomists-parish-level-access/ and enter the following password: 3rE245Te. 

You’ll have access to a private parenting community, coloring pages, family games and activities, arts and crafts ideas, plus much, much more!

Don't hesitate! Join today!
