Celebrating Saints and Seasons
Sr. Victoria Vondenberger;
Number of pages: 190
With humor and a prayerful spirit, Jeanne Hunt taps into her experience and creativity as mother, grandmother, catechist, artist, and writer to show us in easy and practical ways how to look deeper at these ordinary things surrounding us in order to enter into the sacred way. She encourages parents and grandparents, teachers, and religious educators to use this as a handy resource for celebrating in your home and classroom settings the seasons and special people of the calendar year and the church's liturgical year. She offers hundreds of activities, rituals, and prayers to make living our faith tangible, spiritually enriching—and fun! Activities include a New Year's campout, morning prayer for Christian Unity week, a Lent poor box, an Emmaus walk, a Pentecost meal, an All Saints' festival, a St. John the Baptist Advent wreath—and many more.
Jeanne Hunt holds degrees in art and theology and has served as director of family life for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and been a director of religious education for many years. She gives workshops for catechists and teachers and preaches parish missions and retreats on faith formation. She wrote Choir Prayers and Handing on the Faith: When You Are a Single Parent.
