You will find all the prayers, crafts, family activities, litanies, and recipes that will help make your children ever-mindful of the beautiful rhythm of the Church calendar.

We and Our Children: How to Make a Catholic Home (Mary Reed Newland)

How does one develop a space for one's children free from the worst aspects of the surrounding culture?

Newland offers wise counsel on making the home a domestic church for raising Catholic children in holiness, truth, virtue. All things central to a child's life—play, school, creative activity, family responsibilities, prayer, the sacraments, and the Mass—can encourage a spiritual outlook and the formation of sound Catholic habits. Here is an inspiring and common-sense guide to help Catholic parents develop the spirituality of their children.
