  • A closing prayer.

Things you will need:

  • For making your own 'Journey Challenge'
    • a large sheet of paper (A4 size, or bigger if available)
    • a black/dark pen
    • coloured pens or crayons
    • coloured paint - optional (if you make a 'fingerprint' journey)

  • For making your own 'Prayer Cross'
    • a large sheet of paper (A4 size)
