The book has 52 fun and creative lessons, one to use each week of the year during dinner time. This book can help parents to transform regular dinner time into a prayerful faith lesson for their elementary school to high school aged children. Each lesson begins with an opening prayer followed by a short teaching to be read by a family member. There are reflection questions, a short closing prayer and a prayer to be used throughout the week. Recipes are also included throughout the book. Topics include Living the Beatitudes, the Communion of Saints, Respect for the Human Person, the Tradition of Prayer, Social Justice, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and 46 other topics. To purchase a book, please make arrangements with Jo Kusek at 402-572-0369 or email@example.com Checks are written to St. James/Seton P.R.E. Books can be sent home with students from SJS.
