Faith formation begins at home. Families are the primary nurturers of faith for children. It is an important and exciting task to make faith a part of your family’s everyday activities. If you are feeling a little unsure of where to start, you’re not alone. Many parents, grandparents, and Godparents are left wondering how to go about this and if they’re really equipped for the job. The good news is: you are!
Advent includes the four Sundays and weeks before Christmas and focuses on waiting and preparation for the birth of the Christchild. In many homes, the bringing out of a nativity is a family ritual marking the season of Advent. For some families, pieces of the nativity scene are added each week in Advent, saving the placing of the Christchild in the manger for Christmas Eve and the Magi for Ephiphany, the twelfth night after Christmas.
Summer brings us lots of opportunities to discover God's presence all around us!
