THE FAMILY SHIELD: A FAMILY MINI RETREAT
Here is an idea for a family retreat offered by the USCCB in 2015. It involves scripture reading, group work, reflection, and creation of a family shield to be taken home and hung up by families. The Family Shield craft was part of Family Fest 2016. PARISHES or individual FAMILIES are welcome to gather together and share this mini retreat.
