  1. So many great ideas! Thanks. I was looking for May liturgical celebration ideas aside from a May crowning. Do you usually celebrate Blessed Imelda's feast day? My daughter will receive next spring but has gotten very attached to Blessed Imelda. Thinking perhaps we need to celebrate her feast day as a kick off toward First Holy Communion preparation. Thanks, Jessica for all your great ideas. Hope everyone is well!

    1. The only thing we have done in the past is read a short story about her life on her feast day. I think celebrating her feast is the perfect way to kick off First Holy Communion preparation!! Great idea!
