Music for the Weekend

Responsorial Psalm

“Give the Lord glory and honor.”

Craft Activity for the Weekend

If we are to “Give to God “, we can do so by our loving and kind actions towards God’s creations.  So let’s create a Joy Journal!

You will need

  • Any sized notebook
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers or anything to write with
  • Crayons or anything to color with
  • Any other things you can find to decorate your journal

First well make a book cover using the construction paper to cover both the front and back of the notebook, well cut it to size and then fold and glue the edges of our paper onto the notebook edges.  Now that we have a book cover, let’s decorate!  With our markers and colors we can draw and title our book “My Joy Journal” or just “Joy Journal”

Next we can fill our journal up with things that bring us joy.  Try to think of all the things that god made and figure out your favorites like flowers, bees, my cat, or any other creation that you like, then draw a picture of it. We can also go outside and find things to put into our journal like little flowers from the yard, leaves from the trees, or a pretty feather that you found.  When we’ve filled up our journal, think of why you like these creations, then write it down next to the picture or object, as a thank you to God.  Showing appreciation for God’s creations is a great way to give back to him.

Music for the Weekend

Responsorial Psalm

“I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.”

Craft Activity for the Weekend

As we are invited to be God’s guest, let’s invite others by creating our own invitation cards.

We will need:

  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Markers or any other coloring tools
  • Stickers, stamps, ribbon, and anything else that you can use to decorate( optional)

First we’ll take our paper and fold it in half, just like a card. Next with our markers we can write words like “You Are Invited” “Be God’s Guest” or any other variation to express the feeling of inviting someone to something special. The last step is the most fun, with the markers, colors, stickers and other material you want to use, decorate your invitation in any way you want, drawing pictures, gluing ribbon, cutting out shapes with color paper ( the possibilities are endless)

When you’re done, feel free to keep your invitation or give it to someone else like mom or dad or even your church pastor!

Music for the Weekend

“Remain in Me, I Am the Vine”

Remain in me, I am the vine.
Remain in me; you shall have life.
You are the branches:
bear fruit for all to see.
I am the vine, remain in me.

No branch can live without the tree,
Nor grow or serve apart from me.
This I have told you that you may see
My love in you, your joy complete.

No longer slaves, I call you friends.
I shall be with you to the end.
Keep my commandments; I dwell in you.
So, now bear witness to the truth.

As I have done so you should do,
So as to love as I love you.
For in your witness, my love is shown;
In simple ways, my heart made known.

I am the Way, the Truth, the Life.
I am your living sacrifice.
I offer freely my life for you.
Go now and do as I would do.

Responsorial Psalm

The vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel.

Craft Activity for the Weekend

Jesus teaches us to “bear good fruit” so for this project, we will be making our own fruit trees!

You will need:

  • Construction paper( in any colors you want)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers or other writing utensils( in any color you want)

First we’ll start out by drawing our shapes on our colored paper, starting with the tree trunk, then the tree top. Next we’ll cut these shapes out and on a blank sheet of paper, glue them down. Tada! Now you have a tree, but it still needs some fruit. On our colored paper, draw some circles big enough to write in.  Lastly, we’ll need to think about good deeds, actions, or words that help show our love and support for God’s creation.  You can write down words like “Love, Peace, Joy”, or you can write something good you did like “Feed my pet”, “Do my chores”, “Holding the door for someone”. Once you’re done, we’ll cut out the circles and glue them onto our tree top. Done! Look at all the good fruits we made!

Feel free to add any last details to the tree or if you don’t want to make a tree, purple and green circles make for fun grapevines!
