Play and let pray, as applied in an Italian church seems to work

Kids in church. A very difficult combination. The place which more require silence and calm isn’t the best place to host toddlers and pre-schoolers, who may have still hard time understanding the priest and even less on why having to sit for almost an hour straight.

Parents can’t leave the kids at home alone or at relatives, so there you go. Someone must find a solution.

In the small church of San Giulio d’Orta, a municipality just outside Turin, the local priest has installed a small playground full of toys at the entrance of the church. A simple act that had two immediate positive effects.

Adults finally able to follow the celebrations in the church and kids, well, finally having fun and starting to appreciate even more this Sunday routine.
