    I just saw your Sunday gospel Mass worksheets. They are incredible!! When will the sheet for March 1 be posted? I would love to share it with my CCD families.
    Thank you for your super helpful website and lessons.

  2. Hi Lisa~I am a homeschooling mom and I found your site through Dawn’s posts~”Sun and Candlelight”~Thank You for this site~my children love the activities. God bless, Rose

  3. I love the things on this site and they are so informative, however, I did find an error. On your Ash Wednesday crossword puzzle on numbre 4 down the answer is mortality and for number 9 across the answer is abstinence, however when you put the two together, they don’t fit. Just to let you know before too many people bombard you with questions.
