  • Our Colourful Church Year

    Esther Hebert, Gesa Rensmann & Marina Spinkova, Adapted from the German by Kathleen Pearce

    Don Bosco Publications,


    Elementary age children & families

    This delightful little book is the best I've found to introduce the liturgical year to children—and adults who need some refreshing. It includes all major festivals and six saints (Nicholas, Barbara, Lucy, Stephen, Valentine, and Martin). The church year is put into the context of the seasons and illustrated with bright, attractive pictures. Roman Catholic, it is appropriate for Protestants as well, who may simply skip a section or two. All about celebration, it is a great find!
