The Invitation

IT’S SUMMER—the kids are ready for a vacation from school...and you're probably looking forward to some time away from work. The season traditionally affords us opportunities to play, relax, or travel that the rest of the year usually cannot. Summer is especially, though, a time for us to Soak Up the S-O-N! Many of you joined us last year and we'll Soak Up the Son again in 2018 as we present another exciting program to support making Christ the center of our summer. The theme will focus on our calling to "Go Forth" as apostles in the world. This isn’t an invitation for a select few; we are all called to share the light of Christ and this summer we will explore how we can do that. Join us as we #soakuptheSON.

What is #soakuptheSON?

#soakuptheSON is a summer program designed for individuals, couples, and families to assist them in deepening their relationship to Christ and His Church. Through weekly prayers, suggested activities, and other inspirational resources, we will encourage you another to live out your faith on a daily basis—tying the Church into your homes. To participate, check out our website and Facebook page each week for the weekly focus. From there, you can simplify or extend the program as much as you want.

An important part of Soak Up the Son is that you share it—with your family at home, your parish family, and your family of friends. We--your family from the Center for Family Care--would love for you to share how you  Soak Up the Son. We look forward to connecting with you.

Don’t miss out! Have fun this summer--swim, take a nap in the backyard hammock, and enjoy an ice cream cone—but most importantly, #soakuptheson!

Soak Up the Son - Go Forth: Week 6

This week, we want you to find images that convey “sacrifice” to create a collage in your journal. You can use magazines, online images (as a family), or even take pictures of your own. As you work, always keep in mind the ultimate sacrifice—Christ accepting death on the Cross for our sins!
