Catholic All Year at Home, Ep. 3: Fat Tuesday

by | Feb 8, 2023 | Blog, CAY on YouTube, February, Lent, Liturgical Living | 1 comment

Introducing the newest episode of Catholic All Year at Home! This episode is all about celebrating Fat Tuesday before we buckle down with our Lenten Disciplines for the next 40 days. As you watch you’ll discover creative, family-friendly ideas for your own Fat Tuesday celebration!

As I’ve worked with Formed to bring this show to life, my focus has always been family-centered content. I wanted to create a show that is not only good to watch together but ALSO goes beyond the time you spend watching and allows you to discover ways for your family to experience the faith in a deep and life-changing way.

I hope that as you and your children watch this episode together you are able to plan your feast together too!

    We have enjoyed your show very much. Thank you! And, it’s inspired our family to check out more of the Formed content. There’s a lot more there than the last time we logged in! The Wonderful World of Benjamin Cello show is also delightful! Looking forward to more from you and from Formed.

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
