St. Helena

This one is a little late, but for some reason, I didn't have St. Helena on my calendar yesterday, just St. Jane. When the big kids were little, we celebrated St. Helena's feast day by making cross shaped cookies decorated white with one red cookie to represent the True Cross. Some friends who had the same tradition, used to hide that red cookie and go hunt for it the way St. Helena searched for Our Lord's cross. I say better late than never, but save yourself some vacuuming and use a cardboard cross instead of some crumbly cookies! Here is a coloring page for St. Helena based on the picture to the left. You can color it now, or save it (and the cookies) for September 14th when the Church will celebrate the Exaltation of The Holy Cross.


  1. We love St. Helena around here ;-)

  2. I can't remember if I thanked you already for sharing your talent with us. We just love these coloring pages! Thank you for taking the time to sketch them.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
