Family traditions happen when practices and celebrations are regularly experienced together. Take the chore out of planning your family celebrations by making a page for each occasion using this FREE Celebrations Template. Every year, use the same plan for consistency and familiarity that establishes a family tradition. Compile your pages to make your very own Family Celebrations Album.
This column in the Celebrations Template allows you to write down what you need to prepare before the day or season of celebration.
This column in the Celebrations Template lets you write down the essentials for the actual day or season being celebrated.
Space is provided to include sacraments, appropriate prayers, books, and stories for celebrating liturgical and church occasions.
Whether for national, liturgical or family special days, to celebrate is not just to remember a significant event in the past. Celebrating engages the whole person: mind, body, heart, and spirit. We eat particular foods like cake and ice cream, we sing, we give gifts, we play games, we invite friends, we dance, we take pictures, we reminisce and we pray. In making present a significant event of the past, we mark it by making a break from our ordinary routines and engage our whole person, usually with others in a gathering. It's a family and community affair.
Holy days, feast days, and liturgical seasons give us special opportunities for our family
To grow together in deeper love for God and others
To promote family values and foster family identity and unity
To instill a Catholic culture at home and pass on the Faith
To create beautiful family memories
To help our children grow in faith, hope, and love
