Fun with our faith in September

I'm just taking a look at my calender and trying to think ahead a bit. Here are some of the things we are trying to do this month liturgically:

5 Sept. Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. We will color this coloring page and read this book from the library. I also have this book which the kids can look at, and I think I will make this curried chicken recipe for dinner along with some home made naan.

8 Sept. Nativity of Mary. We will attempt this cake--so pretty!--and we will look at some of the art books and find various paintings and sculptures of Mary throughout history.

14 Sept. Exaltation of the Holy Cross. I will have the kids make their own crosses in whatever media they choose. I will suggest watercolors, Sculpey, shrinky-dinks, tissue paper collage, decoupage, wood (Bret would assist there), embroidery or whatever they come up with.

15 Sept. The Seven Sorrows of Mary. I am trying to come up with a unique craft idea for this day. We will discuss the sorrows of our Blessed Mother and pray the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows of Mary.

23 Sept. St. Pio of Pietrelcina. One of my favorite saints, to whom I turn frequently. I only have plans for an Italian dinner of which I am very fond, and which is quick to make (recipe will be forthcoming) and this cappuccino mousse for dessert. Sometime during the week we will hopefully watch this film, which my sister has.

29 Sept. Holy Archangels. We will read all about the angels and find a neat angel craft to do, and maybe make a Devil's Food Cake topped with an image of St. Michael.

I do hope we do these things. As the saying goes, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans."

  1. You know, you inspired me to make chicken curry and rent a movie on Mother Teresa for yesterday :). Yay for celebrating the liturgical year!
