10 life-faith ideas for the school holidays – Day One

20 September 2021


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 One – build your own shelter or teepee

During the holidays we often go on journeys. This activity aims to help your family to reflect on the journeys that many people around the world have to make as refugees, when they are forced to leave their homes by hunger, war or natural disaster.

Daily prayer:

Jesus, our friend and brother, we thank you for our safe homes. We pray that by welcoming refugees, we may show love for our neighbours and be close to you, Amen.
