Month of the Holy Family
The month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family. We all as Christian families are called to embrace, emulate and imitate the Holy Family.
Here are some ways we can celebrate the dedication to the Holy Family:
1. Holy Family Craft/ Activity:
Make a craft together as a family. It can be made of paper, peg dolls… or just take out the statues of Joseph, Mary and infant Jesus from the nativity set and let the kids play with it throughout the month of February.
We made our version of the Holy Family with hand painting. Please check the pic below.
Presenting the Magna Tile Edition!
With Jesus sleeping, standing up, Joseph and Mary hugging and finally family hug!
Have you ever thought of that? Not me. I’ve always seen them standing together for a formal family pic.
ps: Anyone else got a kid crazy about Magna tiles?
Have a family dinner one day where the dishes can be each member’s favourite dish . The dinner can end with games or any other family activity together like a movie night. You could even cook your family’s favourite dish or anything easy together as a family.
3. Prayer Time:
I am sure many of you already do family prayer, however if it is something which has taken a backseat make it a priority this month…
A family that prays together stays together. Spend sometime this month praying the Litany to the Holy Family.
It would also be great if we can remember and pray for the broken families in the world today.
Say the Rosary together and you can also pray the consecration to the Holy Family or prayer to the Holy Family.
Plan a family game night or movie night. If your family loves outdoors have a family picnic or any kind of outing. The motive is that you as a family spend some time together and enjoy each other.
Hope you all enjoy these ideas and can celebrate this wonderful month dedication together with your loved ones.
February is also the feast of many amazing saints. Do celebrate these with us.
