The theme for Sparks of Faith, a gift of Faith on Fire 2020 is inspired by the Gospel of John 1:5, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Over the four weeks leading up to our event on July 11th, we will release activities on Facebook for families that build a fire, and allow us to express our own light shining in the darkness: Gather, Light, Kindle, and Ignite.

Please post your submissions to the Faith on Fire Facebook page, or email them to faithonfire@stmaryanacortes.org, or #sparksoffaith.


We begin with “Gather.” Gather pictures, memories, prayers, and those things which represent the base of your Catholic identity.


The Family Activities for week 2 focus on LIGHT. We light the fire that will allow our own light to shine in the darkness. Enjoy!


The Family Activities for week 3 prompt us to KINDLE the fire enabling our light to shine in the darkness.


The final family activity for week 4, in preparation for Sparks of Faith, a gift of Faith on Fire, encourages us to IGNITE the fire! Show how you have been a spark of faith, hope, and love in your home and community. We also plant the flowers in our spiritual bouquet.
