I’m not sure how it has happened, but September is just whizzing by. This means that October is just around the corner, with the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi quickly approaching on October 4th. To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to have a free printable Saint Francis of Assisi Crossword Puzzle.
I have mentioned before here on the site how special the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi is to us. A couple of years before we felt called to become Catholic, I have a strong memory of feeling both extremely moved and at peace all at the same time while hearing a prayer commemorating his feast day. You see, at that time when the prayer was read over the PA system in a Franciscan-owned hospital, I was at the point of being in the most amount of pain that I would be in while laboring with our daughter.
Now, let’s get to that Saint Francis of Assisi Crossword Puzzle!
In the free downloadable packet, I have included two versions of the Saint Francis of Assisi Crossword Puzzle. While they are basically the same, one version includes a word bank at the bottom of the page and the other version does not.
Both versions of the Saint Francis of Assisi Crossword Puzzle include 15 clues. All answers can be found online and probably in most resources for children about St. Francis of Assisi.
There is also a solutions page included in the download. Well, actually, there are two solutions pages included because at the last minute, I decided to just put both of the versions together in to one download. So, if you are printing this out for a group of class, make sure that you are only printing multiple copies of one page (the one that you want the kids to do, and not all of the other pages in the packet).
