Today, Sept 8, we as Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

After reading today’s Gospel about the genealogy of Jesus and the birth of Jesus, looking at pictures of the Blessed Mother and Baby Jesus and talking about how important mothers are in their children’s lives, we had fun making this simple and fun paper craft from www.first-school.ws. My kids had fun making this layered puzzle type of image of Mother Mary and Baby Jesus.
