  • by expressing love in the home and in the context of the faith community 
  • by talking about and helping them to discover God through nature, at table, and at play, and through the beauty of creation and daily life 
  • by reading and talking about stories with spiritual themes and exploring Bible stories and children’s prayer books 
  • by establishing healthy relationships and environments in school, home and church

“A Call to Commitment”

by Elsa Tamez
Leader:   Come!  Let us celebrate the supper of our Lord,
People: Let us all together Bake a giant loaf
Leader: And together prepare the jars of wine As at the wedding feast in Cana.
People: Let the daughters not forget the salt
Nor the sons the leaven.
Leader: And let us invite many guests:
People: The lame, the blind, the deaf, 
The poor.
Leader: Quickly now!
Let us follow the recipe of our Lord,
Let us together knead the dough with our hands
People: And watch with joy
The rising Bread.
Leader: Because today we are celebrating 
our commitment to Christ Jesus.
People: Today we are renewing our commitment
To the kingdom,
All: And no one shall go hungry away. Amen
