Have you ever wanted to share the excitement of your faith with your family but not known how to begin? The Catholic Church is rich with family traditions from around the world that make feast days and seasons come alive with memorable activities.
Your children probably have lasting memories lighting the Advent candles and giving up sweets for Lent, but do they remember St. Lucy’s Day? Do they look forward to the feast of St. Nicholas every year?
The resources in this category will help you choose religious customs that will make a lasting impression in your home and bring the Catholic faith into everyday life.
We recommend The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions if you’re just starting out. If your home is already rich with customs but you’d like to learn more about their origins then check out Scott Hahn’s book, Signs of Life: 40 Catholic Customs and their Biblical Roots.
