August Parenting Newsletter
Back-to-school sales are underway and school buses will be running before we know it! The new school year can bring over-packed schedules and busy times. Use the ideas in this month's newsletter to be more intention in planning your family schedules so busyness doesn't override relationships and time with God.
Highlights of this issue include fun and inspiring ways for families to take time for each other and avoid the trap of being overcommitted, and discussion starters about how we can make more time for God and each other, along with the reviews of new books, movies and apps.

A Prayer for Evangelization
EVER PRESENT GOD,
we give You thanks for the gift of Your Son, Jesus.
We thank You for the unity we find in Him.
We ask You to send Your Holy Spirit upon us
...that we might boldly proclaim Your love,
...that we might courageously speak Your truth,
...that we might humbly live as Jesus did,
ever faithful to You, ever joyful in Your service, ever hopeful that Your Kingdom will burst forth in this moment.
Send us valiantly forth with the Good News that in this place, in this parish, Jesus is alive, welcoming the lost and leading us all to lives of merciful compassion!
