Families Living the Gospel 

Feet Sheets

These Families Living the Gospel Newsletters or “Feet Sheets” are given to families at our Family Faith Formation sessions. They explain the Theme or Work of Mercy, give suggestions for books and movies families can use to teach the Theme or Work of Mercy at home, and provide ideas on how families can live out that Work of Mercy in their daily lives.

We studied the 7 Themes of Catholic Social Teaching in 2014-2015 and the Corporal Works of Mercy in 2015-2016. This year, we will study the Spiritual Works of Mercy.

Please come back to this page monthly as the Feet Sheet on the Spiritual Works of Mercy are added.

St. Jude Family Faith Formation has been awarded a Ministry Grant from the Catholic Education Foundation of the Diocese of Joliet. The grant was awarded to support our new Families Living the Gospel initiative. We hope to follow the lead of Pope Francis as he has called us to become a “Missionary Church” and a “Church of Mercy.”
