Need a Catholic family calendar to help you celebrate our awesome liturgical year? Read on — I’ve got you covered.
Raise your hand if you always have all the grand plans to celebrate a favorite saint’s feast day, and then ….. you forget.
It ALWAYS happens to me.
I make myself a mental note, then totally forget until I see my Facebook feed filled with angel food cakes for Michaelmas, birthday cakes for Mary, or homemade bird feeders for St Francis of Assisi. I feel like a little bit of a flake, especially when I overlook some of my favorites, like Our Lady of Guadalupe, or even Epiphany.
So, I came up with a simple plan to help keep myself on track. I took a couple of hours and mapped out ALL of the Holy Days of Obligation, along with many of the saint’s feast days that we love. I also threw in a reminder each month for Adoration, as well as Reconciliation.
These monthly calendars are designed primarily for moms, but they can be used in a variety of settings: Catholic classrooms, religious education departments, Catholic co-ops — anyone who wants to live our Catholic faith outside of Mass on Sundays.
Here’s how it works:
First, download the calendar to your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. You’ll see some days that have underlined text. Click these for more information. You’ll find resource articles right at your fingertips.
Next, print the calendar out and stick it on your fridge, or in your family planning binder. Before the month begins, take a quick look and pick a FEW ideas to explore. Choose a favorite saint to celebrate, or discover a saint that’s new to you.
Don’t feel like you have to be an overachiever and explore every single idea listed. Select a few and dive in with your family.

This is Fabulous! Thank you for doing all the work!
This is SO perfect! I’m a prime example of what you’re talking about here. Take today, for example. Feast of the Guardian Angels. One of my favorite feast days EVER. But it’s at the beginning of October! So I never see it till I flip the calendar over and say ooooh booooy I’ve got 24 hours to plan this party! lol!!! Thanks for this resource 🙂
Thank you so much for putting this out there! I need this so much.
These are just great! Thank you. I can’t wait to share with my parent who is just so busy yet was looking for something like this! God bless!
This is so wonderful! Thank you so much! I’m sharing with all of my friends on Facebook, as well as in my Catholic groups! God bless you!
Thank you for creating this!!! God Bless!
Wow, this is an amazing resource. Thank you so much for making it available to all of us. God bless!

thank you for this!
any plans for a 2018-2019 calendar?
also would it work to just use the same ones but know they might fall of different days?
Will you be doing these for 2018-2019 year?
Julie Cannova says
Your calendars are wonderful. Will you make more in January 2020? I would love to have these for our first grade classroom as well as for our families!
Do you think you will continue to update this resource! It would be a lifesaver if you did! Thanks so much 🙂
