Catholic Crafts and Liturgical Ideas for January

The month of January is dedicated to the most holy name of Jesus, and has a lot of really fun feast days for Catholic families to celebrate! Of course it starts with New Year’s day (the feast of Mary, the Mother of God) includes the Epiphany, and has some really awesome St. feast days too, so lets check out some ideas of days for you to celebrate with your family this year. 

For starters, remember that the Christmas season goes well into January. Check out my post on how long Christmas really lasts for Catholics. (This post has been updated a little bit, so click over even if you’ve already read it).

The month of January is devoted to the Most Holy Name of Jesus. I love this J.E.S.U.S. craft we made a few years back- we still have them around my house. Also, here’s a name of Jesus song and more craft ideas to celebrate this day.

January is also a great month for religious snowflake crafts. We like to combine snowflake crafts with The Little Snowflake book. So cute!

One more thing- remember that when you’re setting your New Year’s resolutions, be sure to set them out of this world!!! God bless!

  1. God bless you for all you continue to share!

  2. a wonderful list of resources. as always. thanks Lacy!

  3. Hi Lacy! I just wanted to let you know I heard your blog mentioned on the “catholic family” podcast and saw your book in The Catholic Company Catalog and thought that was so cool! Keep up the good work!

  4. Thanks for these ideas! I wanted to do something special for the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus, but I didn’t have supplies on hand and it was sort of last minute. Instead, I copied that Jesus optical illusion into photoshop and made it into a coloring page:

    The kids colored the spaces with the gray dots and left the rest blank; when they were done, they tried to find the name of Jesus. My oldest could do it but the rest needed help, and all of them loved this quick last-minute craft.

  5. Just want to say THANK YOU for all your ideas!!! We’re trying out a few as we (re)learn our faith.

  6. I love looking at all of the wonderful ideas you share. I look forward to watching the claymation video. Another video I love for the Epiphany is The Very First Noel.
