Family Summer Journey of Faith: Seeing with the Eyes of God

This journey is for all households – Kids, Parents, Grandparents, Teens, Singles…the trip is what you make of it!! 
Consider how you will use the journey to enrich your relationship with God and others this summer!
It can be a summer-long excursion from June 28-August 30, a quick day trip or an occasional outing!  Whatever you choose, it is a unique way for us to take a virtual journey with one another across our diocese!
The Bible is our GPS for this summer journey and the scripture themes guide the activities! So bring out your Family Bible.
We will add Destinations and Downloads weekly to this web page and you can also go to the weekly Family Zone for more suggestions.

For the fun of it you can click on this link to download a Family Summer Journey of Faith Travel Bingo Card  
It is a more relaxed way to make your way to the destination by choosing activities at your leisure. 
With travel bingo, you simply choose to coordinate the listed activity along with the week’s number. 
For example SCIENCE 3 would mean that you find the science experiment for WEEK 3 on the TRAVEL ITINERARY.  
With bingo, you won’t be following the path set by the weekly readings for Mass, but you will still engage in a faith-filled journey!
