Fill your Shoes with Catholic Faith! Feast of St Nick is coming!

Do you fill shoes on the Eve of the Feast of St. Nicholas?

As tradition holds, the saintly bishop is allowed by God to continue the kindness to children that he is known for, by returning on his Feast day and visiting them. St. Nicholas gives little treats to good children who can answer catechism questions and recite their prayers.

Feast Day Fun: St Joseph the Worker!

Feast Day Crafts and Activities

Excerpts from A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families , various posts at Equipping Catholic Families and our Saint Scripts Craft Kits (Series ONE and TWO). Although we enjoyed the Feast of St. Joseph on March 19, May 1st is the Feast of the SAME St. Joseph, this time focusing on the Worker. St Joseph was humble, pure, gentle and wise, protecting the Holy Family. He walked by Faith, taking Mary as his wife and guiding and protecting the Baby Jesus, heeding the instructions from the Angel of the Lord. He worked humbly and diligently as a carpenter, to provide for his family. It is believed that Joseph died peacefully in the Arms of Jesus and Mary.   One of the symbols of Saint Joseph is the lily in honor of his purity, so we present the Handprint Lilies craft!   A couple years ago, we turned a couple of on-clearance TY dolls into Saints…like St. Patrick, Mother Mary, Jesus, St John Paul II. Here is my St. Joseph…and the St Joseph made by friend Lucia who inspired me with her idea and even sent me a doll (St John Paul II) along with these cute little tools she found!
