A Catholic Magazine for Children

Do your children have a favorite magazine?  I've been meaning to share about the magazine subscription that we have for our children for awhile now, and was reminded yesterday when our Summer Issue of St. Mary's Messenger arrived in the mail! 

St. Mary's Messenger is a full-sized, full-color, quarterly Catholic magazine for children, ages 7 to 12, which provides children with a fun and entertaining way to learn more about their Catholic faith, Jesus, Mary and the saints!  It is an excellent magazine, and our children get excited every time it arrives in our mailbox!

Yesterday afternoon, as Captain was reading was reading the article Bear of St. Clare's, he stopped and  said, "MOM!  I know these nuns!  There is Sister Agnes Clare, the one that always helps at Family Camp!"  It ended up being the first thing the kids showed their daddy when he arrived home from work last night!

Some of the other articles in this latest edition include:  Fun for Life (an article on raising funds for ultrasounds), a poem about The Boston Tea Party, Two Tones New Home (another story about a dog), The Pilgrimage to Santiago, Young Washington Boy Miraculously Healed by Bl. Kateri, Recipes and Games, Summer Saints, Seeds and Weeds, information on Spiritual Bouquets, and even includes a packet of wildflower seeds to plant.  It really is a wonderful magazine!

  1. Too funny . . . I caught my older one enjoying her copy of Mary's Messenger, too! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.165199086938259.12890.159401847517983&type=3#!/photo.php?fbid=167435110047990&set=a.165199086938259.12890.159401847517983&type=3&theater

  2. I thought we had signed up to be notified when this was actually in print but this is the first I've seen of it. I'm glad they got it printed but I wish we had known sooner.

  3. Thank you for sharing about this magazine! It looks perfect for my kids.

  4. We signed up for the magazine too, but I never heard back. I'm glad it's out, just in time for gift orders :0)

  5. Thank you so so much to Jessica and all of you for your support and nice comments about St. Mary's Messenger! Please keep us in your prayers.

    If anyone has questions about receiving their subscriptions, don't hesitate to contact me at gkwiep@msn.com.

    In Christ and Mary,

  6. Thanks for sharing, I have been looking for something like this.

  7. I love the scapulars. where did you get them, re the sturdy?

  8. The scapular pictured was actually a gift from my brother-in-law. He gave them to all the kids last summer. I am pretty sure he picked them up at a Carmelite Convent in PA, when he was there giving a retreat. My kids are pretty hard on their scapulars, and wear them 24/7, and they seem to be holding up well!
