Angel Days

~Feast of the Archangels~
St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael

I read somewhere recently that the days from the Feast of the Archangels to the Feast of our Guardian Angels are called "Angel Days."  I'm too tired to figure out where I read that at the moment...Has anyone else heard of that? 

 If I remember where I read it, I'll come back Ok, I'm back after a good night's rest and I found where I read this!  One of my favorite liturgical books is the Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions and this where I read about Angel Days.
~I just love this idea since I love the angels~

I also wanted to share this yummy Angel Chicken Pasta recipe that I used last year.
We didn't have time to make it today since we went on a field trip but I think we still have time in the next few "angel days"...
Check it out!

We did enjoy these angel jell-o jigglers (pictured above) that we pre-made to have when we got home from our field trip.  We just followed the recipe on the jell-o box for jigglers and cut the shapes out with our angel and star cookie cutters.  They were refreshing on this hot 100 degree day.  (Sadly, Autumn weather is not yet in effect here in our corner of the world)

I still want to make this neat Archangel Tri-fold Craft that comes from Xhonane at Familia Catolica.
~God Bless your Angel Days and may your Guardian Angels hold you close~


  1. I have never heard the term "Angel Days" but I like it! We had a good discussion at dinner tonight regarding Archangels/Guardian Angels - this is a fun week!

  2. This is so cute! I love it! And you know we all have angel cookie cutters. Nicely done :-)

  3. Cute idea. I liked what Lacy said about the angel cookie cutters. That is a good idea as well.

    Our parish is named after St. Michael, so we celebrated with a beautiful parish Mass. We incorporated both the English and Spanish speaking members...oh the music was absolutely beautiful!

  4. Love those angels and stars. You are so creative. I've not heard of angel days. i just did a google search of Catholic Angel Days and your post came up as the second one! What I found appears that they are associated with name days. ?

  5. Hey everyone~ I found the resource for Angel Days and updated this post. It came from the Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions. God Bless!

  6. I have to try those jello angels! Thanks for the link Tiffany! God bless!
