10 September Activities for Catholic Families {Free Printable}

As unbelievable as it is, it’s already extremely close to the end of August.  September, when we are hopefully finishing up our last of the summer heat (even if most of the summer was mild) throughout the month and moving into autumn.  So, since September is fast approaching, it’s time for another free printable of 10 Activities for Catholic Families.

While I know that these don’t apply to some of my readers, I hope that even if you don’t feel that they apply to you, maybe you will check them out and use some ideas that might work for your family too!  Although there are mentions of saints throughout the printable, most of this month’s activities are ones that most families could use or adapt for a fun religious (non-Catholic) activity.

{Keep scrolling to get to the download.}

1. Grandparents Day is Sept. 7th.  Help your children do something special with their grandparents or spend the day with them.

2. Decorate wooden, or even paper, letters spelling out MARY. Be as colorful and creative as you want to celebrate the Most Holy Name of Mary (September 12th).

3. Labor Day is the first Monday in September. Take the time to write a note or give a small gift to someone who works hard for your community (or for your family!).

4. Jesus is the Bread of Life. Pick out your favorite bread recipe and have your children help you make it.

5. Be a peacemaker. Do something nice for someone that you sometimes argue with. The feast day of St. Wenceslaus is Sept. 28th.

6. Saints can seem like people from long ago to children. Talk to them about Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (when she lived and died), her work, and her writings.  Her feast day is September 5th.

7. Find your favorite cross craft to create on Sept. 14th for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.

8. Look around your room, house, or pantry for items or food to donate to the less fortunate. The feast day of St. Vincent de Paul is Sept. 27th.

9. Learn a prayer or even short phrase (like “Ora Pro Nobis,” which means “pray for us”) in Latin. St. Jerome translated the Bible from Hebrew to Latin, and his feast day is Sept. 30th.

10. September 22nd marks the beginning of Autumn. Try one of these fall crafts to celebrate.

List it Tuesday

Here we are.  It’s hard to believe, but this week is the very last List it Tuesday link up.  It’s been such a joy having the link up here, first as Top Ten Tuesday when I helped Oh Amanda by taking it over, and then when I invited Kris to host it with me and we changed it up to List it Tuesday.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the link up!  Both Kris and I will still be making list posts.  They just might not always happen on Tuesdays, and they won’t include a link up.  Thank you, again, for all the years of list making fun and sharing!

    I love this every month. I wait for it.
    We don’t get to every activity… but I still put it on our fridge.
    Thank you for always generously putting this up.

    I too am excited about the monthly activities that you have put together. I am planning on incorperating most of them into my Faith Formation class. I was interested if you had a list for October yet?? I can’t wait to see all the great things this next month brings. :)

      Thanks, Kelly, for getting the monthly activities into the hands of so many Catholic families! :)
