Feast Day Fun: February

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!

A Prayer Dispositions Workshop

So we’ve got a wonderful Women’s Ministry at our Parish. We only meet once a month from September to May and each meeting has a special theme. We have an Advent Wreath-making night, a Soup and Small Talk night, a Catholic Trivia night and a Praise and Worship night and a number of meetings with specially chosen guest speakers…and we pretty much always have snacks and wine. It’s a wonderful group of ladies and it has been a privilege to grow in our friendship and spiritual lives together, talking about Faith and prayer and supporting one another, well beyond the once-a-month meeting.

First of all, I apologize if I have included any of your original artwork in my photo collages. I have only included Instagram post screenshots that I absolutely LOVE and I hope that you will consider posting your Instagram handle in the comments, so that others will follow you as well. Be assured that I would never use anyone else’s original artwork in any products to be sold.

Equipping Catholic Families …to Pray

Equipping Catholic Families is very much a family apostolate and as our five kids one by one step into the teenage and young adult years, our family ministry seems to be maturing as well. We will continue to present #catholiccrafts featuring our Catholic Craft Kits, Quizzing Cards and Books while we recognize the changing needs of our own little family with our Catholic kids emerging into adulthood. While my kids still humor me for the most part as I pull from storage our Catholic crafts and heirlooms to celebrate the Seasons and Feast Days of the Liturgical Calendar, I recognize that these little Catholic crafts, practices and programs will likely lose precedence, except for a few little nostalgic tokens, at least until grandchildren become part of our family dynamic yippee, I can’t wait!

Back On Track for Lent with a Custom Lenten Prayer Journal!

It just occurred to me that I might not be the only one who needs a little restart this Lent! With March Break this week, some of our Lenten resolutions have fallen to the wayside.

I have however, been prayer journaling again and I think some of our new tools in the Arma Dei Shoppe have been helping!

Equipping Catholic Families with Catholic stamps for journaling, gifts, snail mail and evangelization!

I just added some new stamps in the shop!

With our own custom Super Saints artwork for over 60 Saints, I’m pleased to be able to add new Saints Stamps to the shop as they are requested by customers. I was happy to include the St Benedict medal graphic behind St Benedict’s head. It almost looks like a very specialized halo.
