July Radiant Roundup

Happy July! We somehow find ourselves in the middle of the summer! If you are looking for some ways to learn, pray, and celebrate with your kids this month, here are a few ideas!

July: The Month of the Most Precious Blood
Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Use any of these activities to celebrate the gift of His Most Precious Blood, especially during the beginning of the Eucharistic Revival called for by the USCCB:
Body, Blood, Soul, Divinity Coloring Page Cursive*
Body, Blood, Soul, Divinity Coloring Page Manuscript*
Seeing Jesus in the Eucharist- Monstrance Art Project*
Reviewing the Eucharist Notebook Activity

American Saints
As we celebrate the birthday of our country on July 4th, we can look to those who have gone before us as examples of holiness, asking their prayers for our nation.
American Saints At Home VBS (all ages) Tons of resources highlighting 14 holy men and women from the United States, with both printables and digital resources. (This is actually one of my very favorite collections I've made for the blog! Originally from the summer of 2020 when we were all looking for resources to use at home, I really think that we have a lot to learn from these incredible people- and TONS of them have July Feast Days!)

American Saints Research Project (6th-8th grade) Google Slides project, great for the classroom!
