Discover the real St. Nick in our December newsletter
Introduce your students to St. Nicholas, the fourth century Bishop of Myra (in present-day Turkey). In our
December Newsletter you’ll find background on his life, his generosity, and his love of children. Related activities include making a St. Nicholas stocking with construction paper and yarn, or making Advent calendars that will encourage children to imitate St. Nicholas. Older students can create miters using card stock and a candy cane (representing Bishop Nicholas’ crosier) as gifts for the pastor or members of the parish.
Here’s an inspirational Christmas gift idea for catechists
Let catechists – and teachers too – know how much you appreciate all they do with a Christmas gift of daily Catholic devotions.
Living Faith, published quarterly, provides brief devotions based on Mass readings for each day. A substantial discount is available when you order at least five copies of any magazine in the
Living Faith family – Living Faith,
La Fe Viva, or Living Faith Kids. For more information,
