Celebrate Winter Saints

Celebrate Winter Saints

Good role models aren’t hard to find! All we need to do is point to the saints in Heaven and learn from them. Learn about some of the saints whose feast days we observe in the winter months in the activity pages below. Then invite the children in your care to think of contemporary people who are doing some of the same kinds of ministries these saints did. Remind the children that the goal of our lives is to be saints in Heaven someday. Following faithful role models will help us get there!
