Summer with the Saints :: The Year for Priests

Today we attended a Summer with the Saints in honor of St. John Vianney!  Here are a few pictures from our morning:

~ Coloring Pictures ~

The children began the morning coloring pictures.  I had offered to bring the coloring pages, and I planned to print the one that Illuminated Ink had available for the Year for Priests but I couldn't find it!  Instead I ended up printing Charlotte's lovely coloring page of St. John Vianney, an image of a priest, and a priest behind lectern.  

~ Craft Time ~

As a craft we created a set of vestments (or 12!)  for teaching our children the Liturgical Colors of the Church Year!

I posted all of the details here.

~ Games ~

 Father Nick and his vestments, from Catholic Artworks, on display for reference.  We also planned to have the children play Vessels and Vestments but we ran out of time.

~ Snack Time ~

Inspired by Barbara's Strawberry Cupcakes at Catholic Cuisine, Marci served Strawberry Heart Shortcakes in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  

St. John Vianney, pray for us!


  1. What a fun day! I wish you guys lived closer to me!

    I love the Sacred Heart desserts - such an easy idea!


  2. Awesome, and I agree, I wish you (and Marci) lived closer to us!
