Pro-Life Novena: Activity Sheet

On this feast day of the archangels,  St. Michael the Archangel Organization's Novena for the Protection of the Unborn begins.

To help children participate in this novena, I drew up a little activity for tracking days of the novena. (I drew it for myself, too. I tend to lose track of days.)  Here's a glimpse at the completed project at the end of nine days: 

What You Need:
To use this pro-life worksheet, you'll need to print out:

Directions:
  • Color the picture of Mary and put it in an accessible place (such as a prayer corner).
  • Pray a rosary for the protection of unborn children. (Here's a refresher for praying the rosary, just in case!)
  • Color a picture of a baby then cut and paste the baby in Mary's arms.
  • Do the same for the eight remaining days, and you've just prayed a novena.
Add the Archangels, too!
And because this is the feast day of the archangels, you may want to download and color a picture of St. Michael the archangel, too. Print three out, color them differently, and you've got Gabriel, Michael and Raphael!

Shalom! ♥
