Ep. 8 : A Prayer for Playing Together

With short, welcoming episodes, Liturgies for Parents invites parents like you to take a breath and find comfort in the prayers of another.

In a weary world, Liturgies for Parents offers a nuanced and nurturing moment of reprieve, inviting all who are raising kids to breathe and remember that God is with you. Liturgies for Parents will leave you feeling a bit more centered -- and a bit more rooted in God's big love for you, your family, and your neighbors, too.
