Catholic New Years' Resolutions

As a welcome back to class exercise after Christmas vacation, ask the students to create a list of ten Catholic New Years’ Resolutions. Also have them write brief responses to the following:

  • Which resolution do you think will be most important for you to keep? Explain why.
  • Which resolution do you think will be most difficult to keep? Explain why.

Sample Resolutions

  1. Attend Eucharistic Adoration at least once per month.
  2. Keep the car radio off until I pray for fifteen minutes.
  3. Hang out with a classmate I have never socialized with before.
  4. Go to daily Mass at least once per week.
  5. Get more involved at my parish.
  6. Join in a service project with teens from a non-Catholic congregation.
  7. Read a biography of a saint.
  8. Go on a retreat without it being required.
  9. Read a biography of a saint.
  10. Hang out with a family member on a regular basis.
