Check out the craft how-to and discussion on the day’s readings with a video from ‘Catholic Crafts with Clare’, and get your print-out with the craft directions and other activity materials below! We’ve updated the craft slightly since this video was made, as the air-dry clay is a little porous and could soak up the oil used. If you’d like to use your craft as a real candle, we suggest using a small insert inside to protect the clay. ALWAYS ask your parent for help if you want to use your oil lamp as a real candle.

Jesus instructs us: “Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.” (Matthew 25:13)

Every Sunday and Holy Day we make a craft for the readings!
