The Holy Habits Challenge
Welcome to the Challenge. Developed by Fr. Reesman of the Archdiocese, the goal is to help our parish members and families instill prayer, the virtues and works of mercy into their daily lives.
Each month, the general habit has three concretely defined versions of it that correspond to different degrees of difficulty in the challenge: basic, intermediate, and advanced. Participants can choose to perform whichever action invites them to stretch their faith life.
Basic Habit: Pray a meal prayer before each meal.
Intermediate Habit: Pray a Thanksgiving prayer after each meal.
Advanced Habit: Eat one meal each week with all "screens" put away or off.
Monthly there will be new cards. Families with children should print the
Family Holy Habit Card which contains ideas for parents and children. Single persons or families without children can print the Parish Holy Habit Card.
Attach either to your fridge or place it on the dinner table so that you are reminded daily to strengthen your faith and complete the monthly challenge.
