It’s become evident now more than ever how important building the “domestic church” is. This time of quarantine and isolation has tested our family in being the first educators of the Faith for our children in a way that I didn’t realize was so necessary. 

Suddenly with the absence of being able to attend Mass we had to make sure we made Sunday’s a holy day set apart from the others way more than we had been.Suddenly without the aid of religious education classes we had to come up with our own ideas of tying in liturgical seasons and holidays in a more meaningful way. I’ve never been more thankful for the connections with other Catholic artisans that I’ve made through social media than now. With Easter Masses being canceled and having to truly navigate Holy Week more independantly I relied on so many printables and Catholic items from other makers. The quarantine has oddly brought me a lot of peace for my shop and I’ve felt so affirmed in my mission of bringing catholic toys and items into your homes. It’s important now more than ever that we rise to the challenge of being leaders of our domestic churches and support one another.The Catholic community is truly amazing and I love how much we have rallied together during this time to continue strengthening our own little domestic churches in new ways.Because of my gratitude for all those who have continued to support my shop or provide amazing tools for liturgical living, I wanted to do my part in offering encouragement during this time with a free printable.Download it here: Bless This Domestic Church Printable. This is designed for 8x10 frames and can be printed on typical 8.5x11 paper.
