This NEW calendar presents the concept of the liturgical year in a manner that everyone can understand and appreciate. Each season is represented by a reproducible, colorable, full page illustration, and is accompanied by a large, blank calendar page that is meant to be filled in with the appropriate dates.
Each season also includes a detailed description of its symbolism, and an explanation of why it is important. More than 120 different feast day stickers and hundreds of liturgical color bars are also included, and the entire calendar is bound in a recyclable 3 ring binder.
"We had so much fun with this calendar! The kids loved coloring the pages - we would take several days (since the pictures are very detailed), and do them slightly in advance of the season so it was "ready to go". I love, love, love the rich symbolism, and it has really helped the kids "latch on" and understand the Faith. Occasionally, a favorite saint was not represented by the stickers, but it was easy to just write them in or even draw our own symbols. Using the liturgical colors stickers also helped the kids realize the importance of different types of days and feasts, and be aware of the kind of day it was (in church) *before* we got to mass to actually see the vestments. Might seem like a little thing, but it was a big deal to my littles, especially for daily mass - "Red day today! Who was martyred?" Thanks you so much for such a wonderful resource!
