Crafting a Holy Water Font

by | Sep 29, 2011 | Crafts, Little Flowers, Little Flowers Wreath IV, St. Catherine of Alexandria | 0 comments

For our 2nd Meeting the year, as we work our way through Wreath IV of the Little Flowers Girls’ Club, we will be making Holy Water Fonts since the Member’s Guide lists the symbol for this meeting as being “Water.”  I choose to make ours Heart Shape in honor of St. Catherine of Alexandria, the saint we will be studying for this meeting as well!    The jewel for this month is the Emerald, and so I also picked up some Emerald colored paint, but I will give the girls a variety of colors to choose from when they paint their own.
St. Catherine of Alexandria 
Holy Water Fonts
Wooden Plaques (these were $1.00 each at Michaels)
Sawtooth Hangers or Ribbon
Plastic cups (from the Dollar Store) 
Hot Glue
Paint and Paintbrushes 
Crucifix (or other religious items to decorate the Holy Water Font)

Paint Wooden Plaque.  Let dry.
Attach Sawtooth Hanger.  
Another option that would be really pretty would be to glue ribbon to the back, creating a loop to hang the font from on the wall. 
Applying a dab of hot glue, attach plastic cup. 
Decorate with Crucifix or other religious objects.

By Thy Precious Blood and by this Holy Water, cleanse me from my sins, O Lord.

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.
