Feast Day Fun: St Peter and St Paul

June 29  is the Feast Day of St. Peter and St Paul.

Peter and Paul are two very important characters from the Early Church.

Peter was the most frequently mentioned member of the original 12 Apostles, who traveled with Jesus throughout His Public Ministry and could testify to the Resurrection. Jesus foretold that this apostle would be the rock upon which the Church would be built.  Despite Peter’s betrayal of Jesus after His Arrest, St Peter led the Apostles, became the first pope and was martyred for his faith.

Equipping Catholic Families to celebrate the Canonization of Pope John Paul II

Awesome day to be Catholic! We’re basking in Divine Mercy Sunday, waking up this morning to the canonization of 2 Popes by 2 Popes! We know a little bit about St John XXIII, but we’re a little biased and unapologetic for our love for St John Paul II!
