Ideas for Celebrating the Feast of St. Padre Pio

St. Padre Pio has a feast day coming up on September 23. If I were to rank St. Padre Pio on a popularity scale from 1-10, I would give him a 10! He sure seems to be a ‘crowd pleaser’, and there’s no question as to why if you read about St. Padre Pio. The most famous thing about him is his stigmata. Well, that and his fist fights with demons and levitating and all kinds of crazy cool stuff :-) Anyway, here are some feast day ideas for celebrating with your kids:

Ok, call me crazy, but I love these Stigmata Rice Krispie Treats
from Family at the Foot of the Cross

My Little Flower made a St. Padre Pio Lapbook.

over on Catholic Online.

Waltzing Matilda has 2 St. Padre Pio Coloring Sheets!
These were colored by Keeper of the Keys

Find a St. Padre Pio Spoon Craft over on 
Cottage Blessings. He’s standing with St. Francis here.

I really want to find time to celebrate St. Padre Pio’s feast day with my kids this year! I love these little spoon saints and I would like to make a whole slew of them… I mean … I want my kids to make a whole slew of them. ;-)
