The theme for November is "Learning gratitude.'
In our modern culture, the month of November marks the beginning of the fall and winter holidays – Thanksgiving, Advent and eventually Christmas.
When I talk to parents in parishes throughout the country, I hear two common concerns about this time of year:
1) How do we make sure our Catholic faith is the center of our holiday celebrations, and
2) How do we help our children learn to be grateful (rather than spoiled or selfish)?
Gratitude is learned and the activities here can help kids (and all of us) remember to count our blessings.
