In this booklet you will find basic background information about 6 saints whose feast days are celebrated during the summer. Additionally you will find simple ways to celebrate each feast day as a family.
Summertime offers an excellent opportunity for families to connect. Meaningful and memorable family activities are not just clever ways to entertain your children — they are opportunities to create a positive, collaborative, and joyful family culture.
For 40 days your family has fasted, prayed, and given generously. These labors prepare our hearts to taste and see the goodness of our risen Lord. Remember that Easter is not just one day or even one week. Easter is a season of 50 days, celebrated until Pentecost. Pope John Paul II once said, “We are a resurrection people, and Alleluia is our song.”
