Praying together as a family
During these times when families cannot visit one another, and for some that means they are at home by themselves, one thing we can do is unite in prayer.
The family prayer here from the Family Ministry of the Archdiocese of Birmingham encourages families in their homes to put 10-15 minutes aside to join in prayer. You could also join with extended family agreeing a time to video call/zoom and say the prayer together.
