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!)

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

    Great list! Side note you cant technically be allergic to gluten as its a protein. That cake does look delicious though whether you have celiacs, gluten sensitivity or neither! Thanks for sharing!
