Contest promotes family prayer

The 2010 national competition “Try Prayer! It Works!” sponsored by Family Rosary is currently under way and open to students from kindergarten to 12th grade in Catholic schools, religious education programs or Catholic parishes or organizations.

Deadline for submissions is Feb. 1.

This year’s theme: “The Family That Prays Together Stays Together” is based on the message of  Holy Cross Father Patrick Peyton —  known as the “rosary priest” — who coined that phrase.

Contest entries should express through art, poetry or prose the importance of family prayer.

Up to three winners are chosen per grade: first-place winners are awarded $100, while the sponsoring organization earns $200, and runners-up win Holy Cross Family Ministries products.
