I truly encourage you to do so for a unique, interactive, digital experience of prayer that your entire family can experience together with thanks to Holy Cross Family Ministries.
While at the Museum and Chapel, you can enjoy formal prayer opportunities by partaking in the Rosary, Mass, the Sacrament of Reconcilation Wednesdays through Friday or Holy Hour for families on Fridays.
My family was blessed to have a sneak peak of the Museum of Family Prayer before it opened and thoroughly enjoyed our day with celebrating the Grand Opening today.
God blessed us with a beautiful day for it!
The food trucks were a hit with my kids.
You can learn about Venerable Patrick Peyton, famous for the saying, the family that prays together, stays together."
Exhibits explain prayer and invite you to pray in different ways.
Interactive magnetic, digital, and listening displays engage all ages.
Artifacts are available for viewing.
And, touch screens offer different people's thoughts in prayer (even, much to my daughter's amusement, a clip from her mom...)
There is also Family Rosary Crusade memorabilia on display.
And opportunities to write out and share prayers.
History of prayer, encouragement to pray, even a children's/family room... It's all there...
And lovely grounds are, too.
However, every Wednesday through Sunday(excluding some holidays), families can enjoy the Museum of Family Prayer - a true gem of a place to spend faith-filled family time.
So, do consider a visit to explore what prayer means to others and what it can mean to you.
You may also choose to volunteer with the museum or become a supporter.
Venerable Patrick Peyton, pray for us.
