Summer Resources for Families
Whether you are enjoying the beach or surfing the web this summer, I think you'll love the book A Millennial in Paradise by Fr. Will Conquer. This book is about the amazing life of Blessed Carlo Acutis, a young 'computer geek' who created a website cataloguing every reported Eucharistic miracle in the world before dying of Leukemia at age 15. His life is a powerful witness of Faith that can help people of all ages.
4th of July Lesson
If you are teaching summer school, working summer camps, or just looking for a great lesson, we have some delightful mini-lessons on the Declaration of Independence and human equality. These come from our Infusing the Catholic Faith: Civics guide, a great way to incorporate the Faith into your Social Studies lessons and perfect for the 4th of July!
Just for Fun
For those of you looking for some arts and crafts activities this summer, here is a great page with all sorts of Catholic crafts. In particular, this 'Summer With The Sacred Heart' series of activities looks like a great way to organize a vacation Bible study! Here is also another page showing how to change your garden into a space for prayer!
