Back to School: THIS year we're celebrating Name Days!


Over at Equipping Catholic Families, we’ve created a number of Catholic Printables to make your family patron saint days memorable.

Some of these crafts are general enough to pull out for every family Patron Saint Day…perhaps accessorizing with a couple of opportunely placed Wooden Painted Saints!

Many of these Saint-centered crafts can be made in one sitting…and just the celebrity Saint-of-the-Day can be brought out for the festivities on a particular Feast Day!

Feast Day Plate


We have a template to make a Feast Day Plate with general templates of saints that can be customized for your favorite patron saints!



A couple of years ago, we made our own family calendar and we eventually created templates with the Kelly Saints drawings for the Communion of Saints perpetual calendar . Display the calendar year after year and keep track of all of your family patron saints, plus First Sacrament dates, birthdays, anniversaries and memorials. We share them with our family and close friends!

We have Saint-packed Cake Toppers that can be used as…you guessed it, cake toppers, but also table decorations, badges, calendar stickers,  Saint-centered conversation prompts and homemade Saint Day Cards!

We have a paper chain craft with quick saint biographies to countdown to any special Name Day, Feast Day or Season with our Advent & Lent Quest Craft Kit!
