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 Seven – Cooking creations made with love
Baking, cooking or preparing food is often an act of love and a way of expressing care for others. Sharing a meal connects us and it can be a beautiful way to connect with God. Make food fun and enjoy the chance to spend time together these school holidays. May some simple baking allow us to show a tiny sliver of the same love and compassion for others as Christ shows for us.
Dear Jesus, thank you for nourishing our bodies, hearts and minds. We thank you for the times when we can cook together, eat together, be together and pray together. Let the meals we have prepared nourish those we care about with your love. Amen.
