Adoration Cards

One of the components of religious education at St. Cajetan is the opportunity to take children to the church for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Tuesday of every month. I wanted to come up with something to place in the hands of young people to guide/prompt them in their conversation with Jesus, present in the Most Holy Sacrament. So, I put together the following prayer card, “A Conversation with Jesus,” which does just that: it guides and prompts young people to engage in a conversation with Jesus.

To fortify the cards, I “laminated” them, this time using clear contact paper as was suggested by Barb in a comment she left on my August 28 post. I made about 50 of them so that we can place them in a basket and distribute them to children as they come into the church for Adoration (we can visit any time during our 90 minute session).

They are 5 x 8.5 in. I picked up the contact paper (1 roll of 20″ x 15′ adhesive liner – clear) at Menards for $4.99.

Comments

  1. Whether it’s laminated or written on a cardboard box, prayers to get children in Adoration are a divine idea. I am currently working on a Catholic VBS program and encourage the DREs to bring the little and big ones into Adoration to Adore Him.

  2. This looks great! I can not wait to use it with my seventh and eighth grade students. I am always trying new ideas when it comes to bringing them closer to Jesus. Thanks!
