May Crate: St. Dominic Savio, Our Lady of Fatima & Names of Mary
May is here! This month we will feast with St. Dominic Savio and Our Lady of Fatima, learn about the many names of Mary, and dive into virtue and Scripture. Our monthly boxes empower you to build a Catholic culture in your home and share our beautiful faith with your children. We are all on this journey to sainthood together.
Feast Day #1: St. Dominic Savio (May 6th)
St. Dominic Savio Art
Each month your crate includes two art prints to help you celebrate your feast days. On the back of your lovely print, you can find feast day information to share with your little saints. Display these on the feast day, or all month long. Collect these prints for years to come.
St. Dominic Savio Tattoos
St. Dominic Savio is the patron saint of the falsely accused, juvenile delinquents, and choirboys. To celebrate his feast day, we have included temporary tattoos for your little saints in the making.
Feast Day #2: Our Lady of Fatima (May 13th)
Our Lady of Fatima Art
In honor of Our Lady of Fatima join us in a Miracle of the Sun Reenactment.
Miracle of the Sun Magnetic Reenactment
Place magnets on your refrigerator or any magnetic surface. Read the story of Our Lady of Fatima: Miracle of the Sun aloud while your children move the magnets along with the words.
Catechesis Corner: Names of Mary
Names of Mary Poster & Booklet
Your crate includes a one-of-a-kind 8x10 poster with amazing depictions of several names of Mary. We suggest you hang the poster in a place of prominence in your home and challenge you to learn two names of Mary each week. We’ve provided a booklet for your reference with information about each name. We hope you enjoy sharing some Marian history with your little saints.
Beautiful Words: 1 Samuel 3:9
This month we challenge all of you to be like Samuel. Find a few minutes each day (or week) to sit quietly with your family and the Lord. Repeat, “Speak LORD for your servant is listening,” in mediation and open your hearts to hear the will of God in your life.
Virtue Chat Table Topper: Generosity
Each month we will focus on a particular virtue as a family. Put this table topper wherever you eat meals together and use it to guide daily conversation. Read the brief reflection and discuss what things immediately pop into your head. Invite each person at the table to share their insights. There are NO wrong responses. We are all learning together. As a family, show generosity and gratitude to each person who shares. This is a beautiful way to unite our families and develop strong character.
Each month includes a playlist full of beautiful music. We encourage you to play the music in the car, at home during the day, during bath time, while cleaning--basically in the background of your normal everyday life.
