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.
Managing Your Riches
Basic Habit: Practice consistent stewardship to your parish.
Intermediate Habit: Make a monthly donation so some Catholic Charitable Outreach besides your parish.
Advanced Habit: Keep a "NO-COMPLAINTS JAR": Give up complaining and toss money into a jar each time you slip up to give to the poor.
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.
