Mary, Mother Of The Church (Feast Day Ideas For Kids)

This feast day is extra exciting because it’s very new! The first year it was celebrated was 2018. I always love celebrating Marian feast days with my kids. You can find my resources for honoring Mary with your kids here. This is a moving feast day that happens the Monday after Pentecost Sunday each year. Now let’s look at some ways to celebrate the Mary, Mother of the Church feast day with kids

Look To Him And Be Radiant has a really beautiful free printable Mary, Mother Of The Church page for kids to color for this feast day. 

The Catholic Toolbox also has a free printable Mary, Mother of the church board game for kids. I love her file folder games! What a great resource for the Catholic community. 

Call Her Happy has this cute Mary Mother Of The Church printable activity for littles, and it’s only $1 to download. She has a cloak that gets glued on and the kids draw their own church inside. So cute! 


As this new feast day is a great way of acknowledging Mary’s presence and roll in the Pentecost story, you may like to make my “Pentecost Mary” printable peg doll, which is a part of my printable resurrection set. I provide step by step instructions for painting her head, and you decopage on the body!
