The call for entries has been announced for the 2014 “Try Prayer! It Works!” Contest. In this national competition sponsored by Family Rosary, children are encouraged to express their faith through art, poetry and prose.

The “Try Prayer! It Works!” Contest is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The national competition attracts more than 1,000 entries from approximately 22,000 participants nationwide. Children and teens from Catholic schools, parishes, home schooling, and other Catholic organizations use their talent to convey their beliefs.

This year’s theme – “Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief” – is based on the Fourth Joyful Mystery. Through the art activity, children will learn more about The Presentation in the Temple and how it shows us that faith is important. Believing in Jesus and Mary will help us make wise choices when faced with difficult decisions. The Fourth Joyful Mystery helps us understand the significance of accepting Christ on faith and trusting in his word.

The “Try Prayer! It Works!” Contest asks entrants to use creativity to depict their faith. Children in grades K-12 enrolled in a Catholic school, religious education program, parish, home school or other organization are eligible to participate. Questions? Call Holy Cross Family Ministries at 800-299-PRAY (7729). Encourage your parish or school to participate!
