Family Faith at Home

1)  Create a Prayer Space in your Home

- Each family brings something that is special to them to the space (to help make it special and unique for everyone)

- Spend time as a family in prayer there everyday. (Having a designated quiet place to go too for silence and to be with God is a great option for when the day seems long and growing impatience with family members is brewing.)

- Then send us a picture of it! Through email or on our Facebook page!

2)  Watch a Movie on FORMED Together about a Saint 
 

To create a FREE Nativity parishioner account, check out our how-to video: click here.

 

-What Saint did you pick to watch to learn more about?

-What was stuck out to you and your family?

-What can be learned from their story to bring back to where our lives are at right now?

- Email your response! We love to here how the Saint's stories are affecting people's lives in different ways.

3)  Watch Mass Together as a Family
 

- Live Streaming Mass or prerecorded Masses can be found HERE!

-Available for Sunday Liturgy and Daily Masses!

- Or can find any Mass on multiple platforms on YouTube, Facebook, etc. 

- Share with us, how your experience was. What did you enjoy about it? What was different or just didn't feel the same than going to Church physically? Email your response.
