The Chair of St Peter

Happy Feast of the Chair of St. Peter!
Yes, there is an actual, physical “Chair of St. Peter” housed at the Vatican. I’ve seen it! Jimmy Akin, can tell you everything you need to know about it and this feast, if you click here.
But what to do about it, today, with your kids? That *I* can help with.
Here’s what we do:
Candy chairs of St. Peter can be made from pretty much anything you have lying around. We usually use some prepackaged cookies and candy, and frosting or royal icing to hold them together.
My kids really look forward to it, especially since most years this feast falls during Lent.
Happy Feasting everyone!
And a little something for the grownups, check this out:

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!
