Liturgical Living At a Glance: February

 February can be such a bleak month weather-wise (it might SNOW today in FLORIDA! We’re anxiously watching the skies!) so, we thought it would be fun to put the ebook version of Feast! on super sale to spice things up!LiturgicalLiving

I’m always trying to figure out how to make it easier for families to observe the Christian Year because we felt so overwhelmed when we first started that journey (which is why we wrote the book we wish we had then).  I thought it might be helpful for our family to have resources compiled for the month ahead so that we can plan in advance which special saints days we want to observe and I hope having them all in one place is helpful to you, too!

(And remember, just start with one or two special days a month! Keep it simple!)

I made a simple printable February 2014 liturgical calendar you can download for FREE.  I wanted to make it a special thank you for anyone who signed up for the new Carrots bi-monthly email newsletter of extra liturgical year ideas, great links I love and want to share, and Carrots family updates BUT I’m bad at technology, so I couldn’t figure out how to make it work. So it’s accessible to everybody! If you want to humor me and sign up anyway just because you’re wonderful, you can sign up on the right hand sidebar.

And I pinned all of the following resources on a February Liturgical Year board on pinterest for your convenience!

And since February can be such a bleak month weather-wise (it might SNOW today in FLORIDA! So we’re anxiously watching the skies!) we thought it would be fun to put the ebook version of Feast! on super sale to spice things up!
