Into Your Hands, Father
Join both St. Joseph in Lincoln and St. Joseph in Colon in a parish-wide Lenten Prayer Study. This year’s study centers around the book, “Into Your Hands, Father.” A free copy of the book and a resource guide will be available in the Narthex through Ash Wednesday. The resource guide contains the details of the study: the audiobook version, different options, and how to form a small group. Anyone is welcome to participate. Alongside the book, there will be a video introducing the study and two adoration evenings (Cor ad Cor, 7:00 pm, 2/19 and 3/18). We hope this study assists your prayer life, deepens your relationship with Jesus, and allows you to draw others closer to Christ. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or download the digital resource guide below.
We now also have Prayer Guides for kids!
For the "middles" (around 5th-8th graders*), we have a guide that summarizes the main points of the adult guide in a succinct way that aids in reflection and prayer. These could be used in class, during adoration, or even at home around a dinner table.
* The middles guide is also a great option for adults that need an all-in-one resource, or a more succinct guide. I have encouraged adult studies to use this one if the book is a lot to handle at the moment.
For the "littles" (preschool-4th graders**) we have a guide that simplifies the exact same points from the older guides but includes simplified prayers, stories, and practices that littles will connect to easily. These guides also include activity/coloring pages as well that can be adapted to the age of your "littles."
** 4th graders may enjoy a combo of both guides, so feel free to use combos of both for them!
