The 2018 Catholic Woman’s Companion will be available on November 1st! Along with offering the planner, I have decided to offer (for only on week) a digital bundle of Liturgical Living materials. I have had TONS of inquires about what is included in the liturgical living bundle, so I put together this post to walk you through all the contents.
But first, I should say that there are several reasons why I created the 2018 Catholic Woman’s Companion. One of those reasons was to help women and their families enter into the liturgical year in a way that is easy, educational, fun, and natural. The planner includes the citations for daily reading, all of the Catholic feasts days, as well as simple ideas for celebrating a few of those occasions. You can easily celebrate the liturgical year with just the planner, but, as I have spent the last 6 years creating simple ways to celebrate and teach the Catholic Faith to our children, I just HAD to include some of these ideas along with the planner.
So I included one project each month of the 13 month planner. In total, all of the 13 printable files included in this bundle would cost you over $50. But, because I’m a little crazy about this planner, I have decided to include ALL of the files here for just $10. But only from November 1st-November 8th.
After November 8th, the digital bundle will disappear…likely forever. Although you will still be able to purchase all the products included in the bundle individually.
Here is a quick rundown of all of the files included in this bundle, as well as a link to the post about this activity. The bundle is 100% digital and you will have it immediately after you purchase the planner + digital bundle. All of the activities here are printable and easy to use. I do offer other versions of a few of these projects that are patterns for making these objects out of felt or fabric, but the files included here are mostly for printing and coloring.

As I mentioned, I will only be offering all of these materials bundled with the planner for $10 for a short time (one week to be exact!). So, if you are interested in all or some of these printables, consider grabbing it as part of the bundle.
