  • Rural Life Celebration Guide
    The purpose of a Rural Life Celebration is to affirm, edify, bless and celebrate those in rural communities. The handbook offers practical ideas and information. You are encouraged to develop a rural life celebration in the manner that best suits your situation. This resource was written with the intention that it would be used within a Catholic diocese or parish, but it could be adapted for use in any ecumenical setting.
