While this first week is the very holy Octave of Easter ending with Divine Mercy Sunday this weekend, we will continue to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus for a whole 50 Days until the Solemnity of Pentecost (the Birthday of the Church!)

No abstinence from meat this Friday due to these extra holy days!

Even though the Easter candy has long since been removed from store shelves, the challenge is to keep going with the Catholic Crafts and activities for the full season of Easter! We’ve compiled some of our trusty Catholic crafts that can be created and assembled ONCE and pulled out year after year!

We had a little extra coloring time this past Holy Week, so we now have the Holy Week/Triduum in colored posters to post in our front window!
These are from CatholicArtworks
