Summer with the Saints :: The Year for Priests

by | Jun 18, 2010 | Summer with the Saints | 6 comments

Today we attended a Summer with the Saints in honor of St. John Vianney!  Here are a few pictures from our morning:

~ Coloring Pictures ~

The children began the morning coloring pictures.  I had offered to bring the coloring pages, and I planned to print the one that Illuminated Ink had available for the Year for Priests but I couldn’t find it!  Instead I ended up printing Charlotte’s lovely coloring page of St. John Vianney, an image of a priest, and a priest behind lectern.  
~ Craft Time ~

As a craft we created a set of vestments (or 12!)  for teaching our children the Liturgical Colors of the Church Year!

I posted all of the details here.
~ Games ~

 Father Nick and his vestments, from Catholic Artworks, on display for reference.  We also planned to have the children play Vessels and Vestments but we ran out of time.

~ Snack Time ~

Inspired by Barbara’s Strawberry Cupcakes at Catholic Cuisine, Marci served Strawberry Heart Shortcakes in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  

St. John Vianney, pray for us!

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.
