Catholic families adore and treasure the homespun wisdom of Mary Reed Newland's domestic spirituality. The prayers, crafts, litanies, family activities, and recipes you'll find in The Year of Our Children will help you teach your children the rhythm of the Church Year. Teach your kids how to make an Advent wreath, who the real Santa was, and the wonder of the 12 days of Christmas. The holy days of Lent and Easter provide opportunities for children to enthusiastically embrace sacrifice and All Souls' Day and All Saints' Day can replace the modern day occult feeling given to Halloween. Make use of the suggestions found in this family classic and give your children a lifelong gift of faith, lived out day by day and season to season. Paperback.
