Easter Celebration! Journal: Tuesday, April 17th

I hope you (and your students?) enjoyed the many Lenten Journey Journals I posted here.

We’re in a new season, so it’s time for another set of journal pages focused on the joy and celebration of Easter. Each set of slides will contain some familiar items (especially the Saint O’the Day), but with new twists and surprises.

Here’s the first one – for Easter Tuesday!

Please download and share these slides: PDF & Google Slides.

Lenten Journey Journal: Monday, April 3, 2017

I’m back from Spring Break and looking forward to finishing Lent with the school-daily Lenten Journey Journals.

Please download and share these slides – PDF and Google Slides 

And the Sisters of St. Joseph have their April calendar to continue the 100 Days of Prayer.

Lenten Journey Journal: Ash Wednesday (1 March)

Today is the first day I’m posting the Lenten Journey Journal for 2017.

Please download it and share – PDF or Google Slides.

During Lent, I will not be doing separate slides for Saint O’the Day. Rather, I’ll embed these within these journal “pages”

And the Sisters of St. Joseph have the next calendar for the 100 Days of Prayer

Christmas Celebration Journal: Tuesday, January 3, 2017

In a way similar to the journals I created for my students to use during Advent, I’ll be creating and posting Christmas Celebration Journals for my students to use in class during the remaining days of the Christmas season.

After our class opening prayer, I dim the lights, put on quiet music and walk my students through a brief, prayerful, centering activity. I continue to play the music and invite them to reflect on these journal pages (what they write is for them only) and/or to gaze at the art in prayerful contemplation.

I’ll offer the journals here in two forms – a PDF to “download and go” and as a Google Slides (in case you want to modify it)

And I’ll try to use both traditional and contemporary art:

Advent Journey Journal: Third Tuesday of Advent

Please download and share this journal page which I’m inviting my Sophomores to use during our Advent prayer time. Rather than write, they may also ponder and gaze at the relevant art on the slides.

And, as this is my last Advent Journal before we have our midterms and Christmas Break, enjoy this extra art:

May you and yours have a blessed and joy-filled Christmas!

Meditation Monday: Third Week of Advent

As I mentioned last Monday and the Monday before, the Spirituality Committee at my school has commissioned me to create a short video meditation for each Monday of Advent. It’s my pleasure to share this video for you to personally use or to share with others:
