How can families make sure summer isn’t a vacation from God?
Our package from Catholic News Service shows how at home or on the road, families and parishes can deepen their faith by including prayer in both daily and vacation activities.
Schedule God into busy summer family plans
Summer can be a whirlwind of activities — barbecues, trips, late nights — that upends the normal routine. Yet even amidst the joyful chaos, we can find God through moments of prayer and reflection.
Welcoming parishes help vacationers keep the faith
Parishes in vacation spots have a unique opportunity to minister to visitors. By reaching out to travelers, these faith communities enable their guests to stay connected to God while on the road.
How parishes can support faith growth in summer months
With some flexibility and imagination, parishes can not only maintain but enhance faith at this time of year.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
