Happy Birthday Mother Mary!

There are a lot of ways to celebrate Mother Mary’s birth; the most obvious is probably a birthday cake! In A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families we recommend an All-White Dinner reminding us that Mary was born without sin! I collected a bunch of pins on Pinterest, searching Birth of Mary, birthday cakes and white food… At Equipping Catholic Families, we have created a number of dolls and figures for Mother Mary. Check out: Egg Carton Mary and Mary TY Doll and our Wooden Painted Saint: Mother Mary! Check out our Wooden Painted Saint Tutorial An Alphabet of Mary is a sweet book with little poems, explanations and illustrations of the titles and qualities of Mother Mary.

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.
