Were you a runner, box builder, artist, prayer leader, or on quality control at Family Program on November 20 & 21? There were jobs for everyone as we packed food for the House of Peace Holiday Food Boxes. This annual activity is a favorite for all ages.
In keeping with our theme of Pray Always All Ways, we made this activity a prayer in several ways. We asked God to bless our work before we began and we kept those who would receive the boxes in mind while we worked. Fr. Perry’s presence with us was especially helpful for this. We also prayed for holiness when we finished. You can see that prayer video here. In addition, families were given a discussion card to extend the learning. Get a copy of that card here.
Thank you everyone for all your hard work! We sent over 180 boxes to the House of Peace.
Parents took part in another session of Parent Café – a collaboration with Common Ground. They explored the question “How do you raise children who are strong in their Catholic identity but also can relate to those of other faiths or to those with no faith?”
Here’s our Newsfeed for this week – with several important reminders.
