Activities, Crafts and Family Traditions for August Saints Days

We’ve put together a quick summary of Catholic Crafts for August Saints and the Monthly Devotion of The Immaculate Heart of Mary. Summer is a great time for a little extra crafting…so we also present Equipping Catholic Families…for Summer with the Saints!

Speaking of SAINTS, check out this incredible resource for equipping Catholic Families to celebrate the Saints throughout the entire Liturgical Calendar!

Saints: Becoming an Image of Christ Every Day
of the Year

by Dawn Marie Beutner

Here’s my full REVIEW

I love this resource on the Saints! I have quite a few books about Catholic Saints, but this one is now my FAVORITE! There are SO many saints in this book…between two to six Saints, for every day of the year! The biographies are relatively short and succinct with all the most important facts about each Saint’s life and the virtues we can learn from them! Read More…

Maximilian Kolbe: The Saint of Auschwitz

by Jean-Francois Vivier (Author),
Denoel and Joel Costes (Illustrators)

Here’s my full REVIEW

This is an exciting way to introduce young people to the lives of the Saints! The life of St. Maximilian is inspiring in His love, devotion, mission and martyrdom. The form factor of the comic book/graphic novel is excellent for reluctant readers, but will inspire the young and old alike!
