An All Saints Fair

by | Mar 19, 2010 | All Saints Day, St. Joseph, St. Patrick's Day | 5 comments

As I mentioned earlier, yesterday we attended an All Saints Fair that was put on by our Homeschool Group.  Each family was to set up a display on a Saint of their choice and we choose St. Joseph since I didn’t have any extra time to plan and prepare, and we already had a lap book full of information his feast day is also this week.  ðŸ˜‰

Here are a few pictures of our little display:


We stood the St. Joseph Lap Book in the center of the table.  We then put together another 3-D Color & Cut St. Joseph Altar for display, and handed out supplies for each family to make their own at home.  We also had a few of the foods you might find on a St. Joseph Altar:  Breads, Cookies, Pastries, Cream Puffs, Fruit, Sparkling Grape Juice Wine, Fruit, and Gold Fish Fish.   

Here is a close up of our 3-D altar for this year. Once again Rascal did all the coloring. 
(FYI: Cereal, Cake Mix, and Jello-Pudding Boxes work great!)
I also had coloring pages for the children to color:
St. Joseph the Worker illustrated by Charlotte
St. Joseph from Catholic Artworks Faith Keepers Combo CD
and this beautiful St. Joseph from St. John the Baptist
Here are pictures of some of all the other amazing Saint Displays:

    Wonderful! Our homeschool group started out doing this. We've taken a break from it, but I always enjoyed participating!

    Happy Saint Joseph's Day!
    I did not know that a solemnity is the highest ranking of any feasts in our Church Calender. That means by Can. 1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday
    I am always excited to learn the different teachings about our faith I didn't know. Thanks for posting about your "Saints Fair" and giving us ideas to celebrate St. Joseph!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
