Our homebound parishioners are often people of great faith who fill their quiet time with prayer, yet they can feel isolated from our church family. On the other hand, our students often spend their days rushing between church, school and activities and can easily be distracted from praying ....especially for others. Thus, a new program to help connect our students to our homebound while strengthening our prayer life was born! Each classroom has been connected to one of our homebound parishioners. A class photo and a photo of the parishioner are being exchanged that will serve as a reminder to pray for each other. Also, each classroom may take small opportunities, such as making cards or sending notes, to remind these parishioners that they are still important to us. The hope is that our students will learn more about the power of praying for others and that our homebound parishioners will feel loved and valued by us. That's a win-win situation! Please feel free to include your children's homebound parishioners in your family prayers also.
