A prayerful challenge for this era of lock-down

Create a fish prayer object.

Or, create a shoal!

Use your talents and whatever creative resources you have available in your home to make your fish!

WHY A FISH PRAYER OBJECT?

The fish has long been a symbol of Christian identity, hope and salvation. At times like these, perhaps it is good to hold on to our Christian identity, hope and salvation! Literally! With the fish we create, we can hold them in our hands and we can hold what they represent symbolically in our hearts and minds.
