Make a collage or mosaic
- Together as a community we begin our celebration of the Mass with the Sign of the Cross. We also do the same before any prayer. As Catholics, this is an important act of faith. It reaffirms our belief in God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Sign of the Cross reminds us of all that Jesus has done for us out of love. It is a renewal of our commitment to live as followers of Jesus Christ in all that we do. Make a collage or a colorful mosaic cross to remind us to live as followers of Jesus Christ. Be creative!

Through the storm
