I grew up in New Orleans, a city with a strong Roman Catholic presence. A lot of the kids I knew attended Catholic schools. Statues of the Virgin Mary adorned every third front yard. Fridays in Lent meant that someone was always holding a fish fry.
Families can participate in the life of the church through different, and sometimes unexpected, ways.
What my altar looks like today, how Lent Madness at home turned out, and some summer reading plans.

My travel prayer altar has helped keep me more spiritually centered, grounded, patient, and grateful on family vacations and at conferences.
Taking down old palm crosses, putting up new ones, and making an Easter altar helps our family observe the season.
