Talk About It!
Have fun asking question for all your family members!
Can you believe it’s been a year that we’ve been doing church at home?
How have you seen God’s blessings this past year even though time my have been tough?
How can the story of St. Patrick encourage us to keep spreading God’s Good News even though we still don’t know what the future will look like?
Dig Deeper: Have you ever had to go back and be nice to someone that had been mean to you? How did that situation turn out? How does that remind you of God’s love for us?

Bless Each Other
At the end of your time, give each other a special blessing to remember one of God’s promises.
Say this Irish Blessing together:
May lots of luck and best of friends, Knock on your door each day.
May love beam down upon you, and rainbows come your way.
May Jesus ease every trouble, as you pray to God your Savior.
And may you be forever hugged with the blessing of God’s favor.
