If you haven’t already done so, please make a habit of checking Our Sunday Visitor’s wonderful Parish Life resources each month. Although they are aimed at parish staff and catechists, the columns in this resource are perfect for Catholic families as well. This month, Woodeene Koenig-Bricker encourages us to savor the summer months spiritually and Anne Neuberger has a wonderful look at “Saints and Animals”, encouraging us to help build a strong Catholic identity for our little preschoolers. There are articles aimed at school age and teenage topics as well, and much more too. Check out OSV’s Parish Life section here.
