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.
