Primary grades can participate
by making a symbol large enough to be written on front and back
with a hole punched for a ribbon or yarn string. Create a
"Tree of Life" for display in the school with the names
of your spiritually adopted babies. Use the scripture passage
"I have called you by name, you
are mine." Each class 5-8 could spiritually adopt a boy
baby and a girl baby - maybe use a naming contest. Pray for
these babies for 9 months ending in May with a baby shower with
items costing under $2.00 to benefit ACCESS Crisis Pregnancy Centers,
a program of Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of New Orleans ( a
list of the most common items used in a layette will be provided).
