The 2022 Orthodox Children’s Calendar, “A Life In Christ”, journeys through the life of an Orthodox Christian, beginning with a churching and ending with a memorial. We attempt to answer the “what happens?”, “why?”, and “but what about….?” for each step. Months focus on momentous events and sacraments, like baptisms, chrismations, communion, holy unction, house blessings, and MORE!
The calendar includes:
An extra page for each month with a recipe and activity to inspire further learning about the topic and/or liturgical season.
Church feasts, American holidays, and highlighted fasting seasons.
Select saints days are featured with a small drawing of that saint, to help little ones put a “face to the name.”
Original art throughout, and many images are based on photos submitted by friends of Draw Near Designs.
Perfect for ages 2+
