Equipping Catholic Families …to Pray

Equipping Catholic Families is very much a family apostolate and as our five kids one by one step into the teenage and young adult years, our family ministry seems to be maturing as well. We will continue to present #catholiccrafts featuring our Catholic Craft Kits, Quizzing Cards and Books while we recognize the changing needs of our own little family with our Catholic kids emerging into adulthood. While my kids still humor me for the most part as I pull from storage our Catholic crafts and heirlooms to celebrate the Seasons and Feast Days of the Liturgical Calendar, I recognize that these little Catholic crafts, practices and programs will likely lose precedence, except for a few little nostalgic tokens, at least until grandchildren become part of our family dynamic yippee, I can’t wait!
