Equipping Catholic Families for February Saints!

Equipping Catholic Families for February Saints Days!

This is our monthly summary of crafts and family traditions related to the Monthly Devotion, Key Feast Days and the appropriate Season of the Liturgical Calendar. As our kids get older, our activities and commitment to Catholic crafts has changed and adjusted (at least for our tween, teen, and young adult kids)! While we haven’t exactly been adding a lot of Catholic crafts around here, we do enjoy pulling out the crafts and programs we’ve developed over the years, sometimes sharing them with younger families in our parish!

Holy Family

The Monthly Devotion for February is the Holy Family

This month, the official Devotion focuses on the Holy Family. What an awesome example of family life, St Joseph, Mother Mary and Jesus offer us!

Key Feast Days in February:

Season of the Liturgical Calendar:

It’s STILL Ordinary Time until March 2nd!

It’s a great time to boost PERSONAL PRAYER and FAMILY DEVOTIONS!

Here’s the Re-Release of an Arma Dei CLASSIC:

The Revolving Rosary is assembled to make one Mysteries of the Rosary Spinwheel (to keep track of the Mysteries of the Rosary, decade by decade) and one Prayers of the Rosary Spinwheel (to keep track of the Our Father, ten Hail Marys and one Glory Be prayers recited with each decade). The Our Lady’s Crown Prayer Cards include 24 prayer cards adapted from Rosary Novenas to our Lady by Charles V. Lacey (c)1924. Each prayer of the Rosary is offered as a beautiful rose to weave into a wreath crown for Our Lady. Each of the 20 Mysteries is described, along with a particular virtue or grace to reflect on and exercise, learning from Our Lady and Jesus Himself.

Rosary Stamps




I recommitted to saying the Daily Rosary about a couple years ago. I was a reluctant rosary prayer for a couple of reasons, but finally felt convicted that if Our Lady is asking us to say the Rosary, that’s just what we should do!

I tend to say my decades of prayers throughout the day. I still find myself kind of distracted and not praying as focused or meditative as I’d like, but I’ve returned to wearing a Good Deed Bead Bracelet to keep track of prayers, even when I (inevitably) get distracted by another task, a kid or two…or my own restless thoughts and to do list!

I find it helps a lot to keep track of the prayers within each decade…and I’ve even found a subtle way to keep track of which Mystery I’m on.

I do have a limited quantity of these upscale suede good deed bead bracelets.

Contact Monica for pricing info and color requests, if you’d like to purchase a couple of Good Deed Bead Bracelets to jumpstart your daily Rosary or good deeds!


and just in case you’re looking for some other prayer craft kits:
