National creative writing contest entries due Feb. 2


The “Try Prayer! It Works!” contest, sponsored by Family Rosary, encourages children in grades K-12 to express their faith through art, poetry and prose.

This year’s theme “Being about the work of my Father,” focuses on obedience and faithfulness. The participants will reflect on and express how they listen to God and how they do the work that God calls them to do, thereby living out the Fifth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary, The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple. Contestants must be involved in parish religous education or attend a Catholic school to participate. For details or to download an application, go to All entries must be postmarked by Feb. 2, 2015. Questions? Call Holy Cross Family Ministries at (800) 299-PRAY (7729).
