One thing that I really enjoy making is word searches. I think they’re a fun way to help kids look over terms that they may be studying or just need to be a little more familiar with. One type of word search that I make here at Real Life at Home are Catholic word search printables with topics that might be helpful for Catholic kids or for people teaching Catholic kids either at home, at religious education, or in a Catholic school.
To make it easier to keep up on some of the Catholic Word Search Printables that I have available on the site, I thought I would put together an index of many of them. I will continue to add to this list as I make more word search printables.
If you want to see all of the Catholic printables on the site (not just the word searches), you can check out the full Catholic Printables Index Page.

Catholic Prayer Word Search Printables
These Catholic word searches are great to use while children are working on learning prayers. It’s a fun way to have a different way of practicing and looking at them.
Catholic Saints and Feast Days Word Searches (by Month)
There is a word search printable for each month that features saints whose feast days occur during that month. I love that with these, children will see familiar saint names as well as learn the names of saints that they might not have heard of before.
A great follow-up activity to these monthly word searches would be for students to learn about a saint or feast day that they might be unfamiliar with that is featured in that month’s puzzle.
Sacrament Word Search Printables
While this section is small for now, there will be word search printables for all of the Sacraments. These are perfect to use while teaching about the Sacraments for the first time or just as a reminder and discussion springboard for later.
Holy Eucharist Word Search (includes two versions)
Catholic Saint Word Search Printables
There are currently a few of the free Catholic word search printables on the site that focus on just one (or two) particular saints. This is another area that may grow in the future. For now, here are a few saints who you can get word searches about.
Saint Printables and Worksheet Packets
These include word searches as part of the packets. Some packets are free and some have a fee, but those are typically just a few dollars or less.
The Catholic Saints and Heroes Printables and Worksheet Packets range in size from 13 pages to 42 pages.
You can click through on each saint or hero’s name to see the whole packet:
