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 Three – Gratitude jar full of thankfulness
A gratitude jar is a fun way to create a visual reminder of all the blessings in our lives – a place to record and store everything you are thankful for. Whether it’s a person, a kind act or a positive detail in your everyday life, write it down on a slip of paper and place it in your gratitude jar.
Loving God, we have so much to be grateful for. Thank you for your abundant and constant love. Help us to express love to others with gentle words and through caring actions. Amen.
