St. Paul Chong Hasang Coloring Page

For my sweet friends who made this special request during the short, precious hours I spent with them....

St. Paul Chong Hasang Coloring Page

St. Paul Chong Hasang's feast day is coming up on Sunday, September 20th (although since it is a Sunday this year and the Sunday takes precedence, you could choose to celebrate this feast day any day) along with St. Andrew Kim and all of the Korean martyrs. You can read about our celebration of this feast day from a couple years ago here. This year will look very familiar as we will once again pull out The Princess and the Beggar (you can find another version of the folktale here along with a study guide) and maybe even try some dramatic interpretation (although I think the picture book tells the story better). My girls have saved their paper dolls and I think The Professor will enjoy reading and hearing a little bit more about the Korean martyrs and their amazing sacrifices.

If you are looking for a good reason to learn a little bit about Korea, you might want to jot this feast day down on your calendar!
