1. On the Sunday chosen to celebrate the family (either on Ascension Sunday or Pentecost Sunday), decorate the church to reflect Joy and Love, and involve families (including grandparents) in the celebration.

2. Consult the suggested homily notes and use them as you see fit.

3. Use the suggested Prayers of the Faithful (perhaps asking members of a family to lead them).

4. In advance, ask a couple or a family to give a five minute testimony at the end of Mass on their experience of God's mercy in their life as a family.
