Summer Feast Days (June-August)

+Our (Summer) home altar decorated for Ordinary Time+

Since summer is almost over, this one is for the archives and my own records...More often than not, I have to look things up on my own blog to remember what we did!  Hope these simple ideas help some inquiring spirits out there in future summer months:)

To keep our faith alive over the summer, I look ahead and pick a couple of meaningful feast days to celebrate.  Celebration includes reading/studying about the feast, prayer and an extra activity. Here's what we came up with...
Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary
{June 7-8}
Two Hearts Fruit Pizza
Feast of St. Peter and Paul, Apostles
{June 29th}
Banana boats adapted idea from Catholic Cuisine:)
Month of the Precious Blood
This was an easy paper plate craft that served as our family table center piece and also graced our home altar (above:)
Draw a chalice and cut out, leaving the base to pop up.
Decorate as you wish:) Note: The wider the bask on the bottom, the better.

Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
{July 16th}
Chocolate Graham Scapulars
Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola
{July 31}
Saintly Sword Cupcakes

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
{August 15th}
+Holy Day of Obligation+
Assumption of Mary "Blue"berry Muffins after Mass!

Feast of St. Bernard
{August 20th}
This link has a beautiful prayer card to print out!  We used card stock so it would last longer:)
Summer is over at our house...On to the new school year!
