This year’s theme “Mary, Mother of the Church” helps families explore how Mary is the Mother of Jesus and Mother to us all. Our Blessed Mother’s important role in the Church flows from her deep connection with her Son and from Him to us.
“Mary is the mother of the world,” said Father Willy Raymond, C.S.C., President. “She teaches us to love at all times and always to want the best for the people around us. Mary cares for each of us and will be by our side whenever we’re in need. She became the perfect model of love when she says ‘yes’ to God to be the mother of Jesus.”
The “Try Prayer! It Works!” Contest focuses on family faith enrichment in the home. The goal is to bring the Church’s teachings to life around the dinner table with discussion prompts, reflection question, prayer ideas and creativity.
The first place winner in each category receives $100 while the sponsor of each winner also receives $100. The “Try Prayer! It Works!” Contest asks entrants to creatively depict their faith through art, poetry, prose and video.
