The Domestic Church: How it Relates to School

The family is said to be the school of love. Here we teach compassion, forgiveness, responsibility and every other virtue entrusted to us to instruct our children. Oftentimes, this school of love of the family extends to the place where we also school our children in academics. Our domestic churches that we build in our homes reach far to the places where children go, most frequently, that is the brick and mortar school building! 

 

Here are some tips and tricks to keep the reach of our domestic church and raise disciples and saints to places outside of our homes.

 

  1. Use the car time wisely! A wife and mother of ten once told me that car time really can be the best time. Use the drop offs, pick ups, and sports shuffles for good! 

    1. Pray a decade of the Rosary. Join The Little Rose Shop in praying the Rosary here:  

    2. Keep the radio off in order to foster conversation

    3. Pray a family litany of saints with your holy heroes. Roll call and to make sure everyone is accounted for by having the children exclaim the name of their patron saint and everyone else, saying “Pray for us!”

    4. Use the time in the car to bring up big topics. Bigs and littles are literally strapped in and you don’t have to look at each other

  2. Don a faith filled backpack to stylishly and faithfully show off our Catholic faith. 

3. School time comes with earlier bedtimes (hopefully!) and a little more routine. Snuggle down and add some family prayer before bed with our awesome pillow cases.
