Catholic Mosaic, Crafts, Coffee, Cocoa and Cupcakes!

Today we finally had a chance to read Peter Claver, Patron Saint of Slaves for our Catholic Mosaic study. St. Peter Claver's feast day was actually on September 9th. But better late than never, right?!

We all got comfortable on the couch and read the story. I just love the reading selections that Cay has used in her book. I would have never found some of these books on my own.

The kids helped me make chocolate cupcakes for our tea (which will actually be hot cocoa) this beautiful fall afternoon.


We have company coming over so we will save our treats to share. We displayed them on this awesome cupcake rack we just got from Michael's with a 40% off coupon!

The cupckaes are not quite diet friendly, so I will satisfy my cravings with a cup of this:


(Thanks Regina for the recommendation--it's absolutely DELICIOUS and only has 30 calories!)

The kids moved into the school room and colored their pictures of St. Peter Claver and did a bit of copy work from the book.



"The slave of slaves I'll always be. My soul won't rest until you're free."
St. Peter Claver

    Any chance you have a link to this coloring page of St. Peter Claver? I can't seem to find one anywhere and my kids LOVE coloring their Saints every morning. Thanks for your help!

  3. Hi Lindsay,

    The coloring page is from Fenestrae Fidei - the Coloring book that coordinates with Catholic Mosaic. It is awesome!
