All Saints Day Resources

Here is an infographic explaining briefly why we celebrate All Saints Day, and the Catholic origins and traditions of Hallowe’en.

Catholic.org has a list of fun facts about Saints.

Gracewatch Media have a picture story book about All Saints Day Parties, which you can preview online here. The story follows two children deciding which saints to dress up as, and includes information about some well-known saints.

If you need some costume inspiration, this website has a huge list of costume ideas for children of all ages (and all costume-making skill levels)!

 

Blessings of the Roman Ritual

Holy Mother Church has given us many ways of enjoying God’s blessing. From the blessing of sacramentals to the blessing of homes, cars or beer, the Roman Ritual contains prayers to be used by the priest in blessing many items.

Why not ask Fr Morris to bless new items for you so that you can enjoy God’s protection and blessing?
