Awesome Catholic Products NCEA 2012: Links of LightBulbs {13}

We just returned from the NCEA 2012…the National Catholic Education Association conference in Boston last week! As always, I discovered some great products and awesome Catholic initiatives and wanted to add them to my list of Fabulous Finds at Catholic Conferences.

(1) Our Coats of Many Colors: meticulously-sewn and surprisingly affordable Saints & Religious Order Costumes for kids and adults.  Quite a variety of costumes and sizing…and trust me, these are beautifully made! 
(2) Celebration Banners:  a new approach to
Sacrament Banners
…they even lead workshops in the New Jersey area. Great Sacrament and Catholic-themed precut stickers and a quality burlap / embroidery material backing with a fringe.  They were also giving away Holy Communion cookie cutters!
…Not to be confused with Illuminated Ink…also friends of ours who have awesome Sacrament banners with beautiful designs and pre-cut, quality pieces. 
(3)  Dragon Slayers by Paraclete Press
… not specifically Catholic (had to mention that!)…
I am so excited to review Dragon Slayers!  If you have an 11-year old knight child, fascinated with Medieval times (as I do)…this is a beautifully designed, fun-to-read book, challenging us to fight dragons…a.k.a. SINS.  The irresistable writing style will teach them even more than they realize…and challenge them to the most honorable of quests!  I’m hooked!  I wish I had written this book! 
Watch for my Book Badge Review of this book
and Doodle Summary!
I will review this book SOON!…as long as I can get the book away from my son long enough for me to read it! 
Paraclete Press also has neat books to help us approach prayer in new and creative ways. (I have already mentioned Praying in Color)
(4) Arma Dei: Equipping Catholic Families….OK, after a number of conferences in the last couple weeks (NCEA, MAC, LJH and a few vicariously through some of our friends (thank you, JPToo Bookstore!) flogging our Catholic books, quizzing cards and craft kits…I think it’s OK that I sneak our company in this list. Here is a sneak peek at our newest product:  The Cathletics Club Quiet Bag to keep little ones busy, focused and quiet at Mass…starting with my own 2 year old and 6 year old!
