+❤+ February, Feast Days, And Lent

February's First Friday and First Saturday are this weekend on February 2 and February 3.

They're also the feast of the Purification and the feast of St. Blase - wonderful days to take the children to Mass for several reasons.

The Purification of Mary (Mass) is also called the feast of the Presentation of Jesus (Rosary) and its Mass is often called Candlemas because the priest blesses the candles that the church will use for the year. You can often bring your own candles to have them blessed to use with various devotions. Children love seeing the procession! See a page to color here.

Perfect timing! Some of those candles get put to good use the very next day on the feast of Saint Blase in the Blessing of Throats. Remember to check when your parish will offer this blessing. St. Blase, pray for us!

Lent starts on February 14, Ash Wednesday.

Order Saint Anne's Helper Catholic Catechism for First Communion and Confirmation

There are so many wonderful helps now for preparing for the sacraments, and we want to help you with what we've found. The Catholic First Communion and Catholic Confirmation catechism cover most of the truths in any Roman Catholic catechism so they're a great place for children and adults to learn or review the basics.

Did you know that the main difference in levels is greater explanation of the truth? Most catechisms, both child and adult, cover the 

Simple! A child's catechism is merely an outline of an adult catechism. If you're an adult, read an adult catechism for more details and stories from the Bible and the lives of the saints.

If you're new, be encouraged that you don't have to go through all the "levels".

Catholic Catechism Apostolate

It all began years ago when our pastor asked us to teach the First Communion class, early in our marriage. Later, and after we had taught the Roman Catholic catechism to our own children through the years, using many different catechisms and programs; I was thrilled to find that the catechism is super simple.

In the course of time we developed First Communion and Confirmation catechism worksheets and audio recordings that you can use in CCD, RelEd, Catholic schools and Catholic homeschool. 

Whether you're using the Baltimore Catechism for children or a giant compendium for adults, the exact same topics are covered. What a relief to new students!

Be encouraged by this knowledge and encourage your students with the same. Once they've made it through the basics, you've got a great outline to use for the rest of your life unto the great pearl of final perseverance.

  • Learn the Catholic Ten Commandments now and you'll know ethics for a lifetime. 
  • Learn the Apostles' Creed and you'll be able to state what you believe as a Roman Catholic easily.
  • Learn the Roman Catholic prayers and you can gain many graces.
  • Learn the virtues and live a holy life.

We also have a near monthly Holy Day reminder email list here.
