    Ways to Use The Family Zone newsletter during the month of APRIL

    1. Use the “Mercy Rule” activity in the April 4 edition to invite families to list the ways they can incorporate Works of Mercy into the month of April. Share the list in your Narthex or on your website! You could also make a video of the suggestions like the one provided in the WATCH section
    2. Make Divine Mercy Tie-Dyed tshirts with teens and invite them to write works of mercy they will commit to, on their tshirts with a sharpie! (April 4 edition)
    3. Host a storyhour for kids all focused on the topic of sharing mercy with others. Invite them to share their own stories of mercy works once they have listened to the story book or books of choice. It’s a wonderful way to break open the topic with all ages! (April 4 edition)
    4. Host a Bible 101 evening for families, using the materials in the April 11 edition.
    5. Teach the process of Lectio Divina in an evening of prayer (April 11)
    6. Invite families to create a group illustration or puppet show of one of their favorite Bible stories and have a show and tell session! (April 11)
    7. Host a night for parents and teens to talk about how to model Christian faith on social media and talk about the modern day issues we face with the “freedom” social media provides. (April 18)
    8. Have a deep dive session for families on the OUR FATHER as a path for discipleship. Take them out of the process of rote prayer and into understanding the meaning of the prayer (April 18)
    9. Make a large vine and branches mural…one each branch, write a family name and invite them to write the gifts they bring to your community on a leaf for that branch! (April 25)
    10. Invite teens to make micrography self-portraits and share with their peers (April 25)
    11.
