Spring Cleaning:  During this COVID-19 crisis, many of us are spending each day cleaning and sanitizing our homes. Traditionally many people use Springtime to clear out clutter and unnecessary stuff that’s accumulated over the winter or years. Why not turn this task into a way to pray for and serve others.

Bringing Order from Chaos: Spending a few minutes each day observing, reflecting, and praying about creation can increase your awareness of God’s past, present, and future activity in it.

Stewardship of Your Spiritual Gifts: It doesn’t matter how old you are but how you fit in with the people around you is important. The Holy Spirit gifts you with abilities that the world needs. Find your spiritual gifts and use them to make the world a better place for all.

For Young Adults

30-Seconds of Prayer:  How often do you pray? You may think prayer is too time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. Build in thirty-second prayer times throughout your day and see what happens. 

Let All Creation Bless the Lord: Easter starts the liturgical season of joy and praise. In the northern hemisphere nature cooperates by bringing forth new life and hope. Let us bless the Lord, despite our circumstances, by praying this brief reflection.
