Art for January Prayer Tables

I’m going to depart from my typical suggestion of some classic piece of art and ask you to consider using a photo of someone in a religious vocation instead.  It started when a friend sent me this photo of her daughter, Sister Maddie*,

but didn’t take long before I remembered a bunch of other former Family Formation kids who have also discerned a religious vocation.

Photos have the ability to make a concept more relatable and one of the goals is to help kids think, “This could be me!” You’re welcome to print these joyful sisters or my Family Formation kids** for your prayer table, or you may like some of the pieces I suggested a few years ago for this lesson, found here.  Or better yet, if you have a priest or religious from your parish, perhaps photos of them would be best.  You may also have a local order or a diocesan vocations poster that would work.  No matter what you choose, the goal is to convey the joy of serving God and to make it relatable for your students.

 

*Isn’t this a wonderful picture! She’s with the Pro Ecclesia Sancta order.
