Family Prayers and Activities

Family Prayers and Activities © 2010 Resource Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.

Family Prayers and Activities supports faith reflection time in the home. Each weekly guide encourages you and other household members to gather regularly for prayer and faith experiences. The gatherings provide an opportunity to explore Scripture passages beyond those heard during Sunday worship. After the Scripture proclamation, family members are guided through a light reflection, chatty discussion, and prayer. You then choose an age-appropriate activity to apply the Scripture message.

The fifty-two weekly guides are arranged in six sections. Three sections coincide with the main liturgical seasons: Advent/Christmas, Lent, and Easter. One ten-guide series is based on Old Testament Scriptures, and another ten-guide series explores gospel teachings. These can be interspersed with guides for holidays found in the Celebration Days section.

To use Family Prayers and Activities, select a file, and reproduce it, including the copyright information as shown. Make a copy of the Table of Contents to use as a checklist. Since you may vary the order, the reference codes such as A-1 will help you keep track of usage.
