10 Lent and Holy Week Activities for Catholic Families Printable

Lent and Holy Week Activities for Catholic Families

As I mentioned earlier this week when I posted the 10 March Activities for Catholic Families Printable, I decided this year to not add any Lenten activities to the monthly printables.  That way, they can be used again next year, whereas adding in Lenten activities can make the monthly printables a little less evergreen, since the dates change each year. To make up for no Lenten activities on … [Read more...]

You are Our Joseph

St Joseph

While we were converting to Catholicism throughout parts of 2006 and 2007, one of the tasks that we had was to pick a Confirmation name.  We were encouraged to do research about saints and we even had to share more about at least one saint we had learned about with our RCIA group. I had a difficult time, swaying between various names that I thought would make other people happy before finally … [Read more...]

Giving a Christmas Gift to Jesus

Giving a Christmas Gift to Jesus

Last year, we decided to adopt the idea of giving gifts to Jesus for Christmas.  We had done things like a birthday cake on Christmas, but this just seemed like the next logical step.  I have to admit that we all get a lot more excited and moved by it than the birthday cake.  Although it didn't even involve doing anything new, it just changed our language about something we were already doing (and … [Read more...]

Stopping for the Important Times (aka Lunch with a Nun)

Stopping for the Important Times

This past March, I took the longest solo road trip that I had taken.  I drove for seven hours to go to Petticoat Junction Retreat Center to hang out with some other bloggers for the weekend.  Because I was driving solo, my trip involved trying to make good time and copious amount of Dr. Pepper. Because of those copious amounts of Dr. Pepper, I decided to stop at a McDonald's for lunch after … [Read more...]
