Share some inspiring competitive spirit with your friends and family.

Now that the Tokyo Olympics are over, you might be wanting to bring a little healthy competitive spirit to your own family or parish. While you might not be quite up to the same level as Simone Biles or Katie Ledecky, these Catholic Family Games require a myriad of different talents.

These events are perfect for parish family get-togethers, or for adult siblings wanting a little healthy family rivalry They can be carried out independently at home, and then your efforts can be shared remotely (if COVID requires) or at a family or parish gathering. But, you might want to ask someone of trust to officiate the event, such as your parish priest or an impartial grandparent!

Click on the slideshow for some fun activities that will boost not only your faith, but also your family bond.
