Great ways to take your FAITH on vacation this summer!

It's likely that conversations about this summer's preferred 
vacation spots or stay-cation experiences are already taking place in your family or group of friends. Maybe you plan to spend part of your summer vacation serving others. Any way you approach it, vacation is the perfect opportunity to slow down and keep God at the center of your heart. 

Take FAITH on vacation

This summer we encourage you to take FAITH on vacation - literally! Take FAITH magazine with you on vacation and find creative ways to incorporate the issue into your vacation photos. Share your photo on Facebook (tag "DioceseofGrandRapids") or Twitter (@GRDiocese) using #GRDiocese and #TakeFaithonVacation and we may include that picture in an upcoming issue of FAITH magazine.

Finding a Catholic Connection

No matter where you travel, websites and apps make it easy to find Mass times at local Catholic churches and, if you're on the lookout, you're likely to find some Catholic connection, bit of Catholic history or religious treasure in or around your vacation destination.
Here are some resources to help you take your faith with you on vacation this summer or to make faith the focus of your summer trip!
