Liturgical Calendar - The Week in the Church
While this isn't totally related to Little Flowers, I thought I would share the liturgical calendar that I made for our church. It's right above the drinking fountain so that anyone who gets a drink can see it.
I got the calendar from the USCCB website. While I would have loved to include all the saints from both the old and new calendar, I stuck with what the USCCB calendar had on it. I thought it best to keep things simple. I also used information from the Catholic Culture website. They have great ideas on activities to do on each feast day too.
This was super simple to make. I used a regular bulletin board and just nailed a very thin piece of wood for the clothespins to hang. Each season, I will change the background colors. Of course when I took the picture, we were in Ordinary Time. One each saint card, I try to find a picture of the saint, a quote by the saint and what they are a patron saint of. There just isn't enough room to be writing bios about each one.
This was a fun project. I love sitting down each week to learn about the saints for the week and the seasons in the Church. This would be a great tool for a group or family to have.
