Q: Is Saints & Seasons similar to the out-of-print book A Year with God

A: Saints & Seasons was inspired by A Year with God. Some of the same projects are in Saints & Seasons that were in A Year with God, but they have been reworked so that the templates and directions are in the book. That way the 4th-grade student can complete the projects independently, instead of needing the parent to plan and direct the projects. There are also many new activities, stories, and reflections. The 100 saint illustrations and monthly theme posters are also completely new.

We have a liturgical wheel for year at glance view, from Saints & Seasons by CHC. It supplements really well our feasts and seasons wall display!
