Pope Francis has invited each one of us to enter into the Year of the Family from March 2021 to June 2022.
During this period where our intentional life and faith focus is placed on the family, the Diocese of Parramatta’s Mission Enhancement Team (MET) have designed 10 creative life in faith ideas for the school holidays.
Each day, discover creative, fun and engaging activities to connect with your family and with God and spark some faith-filled conversations through this user friendly, step-by-step resource offering quality time for connection both on and off your screen/mobile device.
We hope that by using this resource to enter into the Year of the Family, we can connect more with family and friends during this lockdown period.
Day Four – Bushwalking adventure
There is something spiritually positive about being in nature, “the oneness”, an energy, a sense of peace and reinvigoration. Bushwalking is a wonderful way to celebrate nature. It reminds us of how small we really are, and how beautiful and vast the world really is! Spending time in nature can help us to connect with God and appreciate the world that has been given to us. Enjoy this opportunity to take a “long, loving look” and quietly pray with creation.
Loving God, thank you for opening our hearts to the world you have created for us. We thank you for your presence amongst us and for the quiet space to listen to your voice. We pray for blessings and peace in our communities. Amen.
