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!

Magnify: Pursuing Virtue as a Feminine Genius: Book Review

Magnify 90 is a program that taps into this awesome book of daily devotions while challenging women to give up various attachments for a period of 90 days.

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.

What’s Your Prayer Type?

We are all called to pray every day! We find our most meaningful approach to prayer affected by our different temperaments and gifts, how our Faith has been presented to us and how much we lean on it in our every day life. We find that our own prayer habits and our favorite go-to prayers are different from those around us, but we can deepen our prayer and intimacy with Jesus by practicing  prayer dispositions that vary from our own.
