Led by Parents - Shared as Family - Experienced at Home
Nourish includes everything needed for parents to lead 10 family meetings in their home. Just open the box to find a variety of hands-on and innovative activities that equip parents to teach, share faith, and pray with their children.
Families will encounter Jesus and experience the beauty of the Mass as it connects to daily life by building puzzles, playing Pick Up Sticks, reading Scripture, engaging in meaningful conversation, and much more. Traditional classroom learning will be enhanced by parent participation as faith transitions from the classroom to the living room.
Watch families dive deeper into the incredible gift God gives us - the Eucharist.
