How can you keep the "Hallow" in Halloween?
|Bruce McGregor and Jen Brown of Spirit Mornings|
with several members of the Dulac family.
Today on Spirit Catholic Radio's morning show, Spirit Mornings, we featured the Dulac family. Dr. Michael Dulac and two of his children – Colette and Gabriel – were in our studio this morning talking about how they celebrate Halloween. Instead of dressing as ghosts and ghouls, the children dress as saints as a way to evangelize. This year Gabriel will be a soldier representing Father Vincent Capadanno, who is the process of being canonized a saint, and Colette will be dressed as an Egyptian princess, representing St. Barbara, an early Egyptian martyr.
The blog Catholic Icing, has some great suggestions as well. In one post, the author talks about explaining Halloween to children. You can read that entry here.
Catholicculture.org also has a page with fantastic resources for Halloween including ideas for planning a Catholic Halloween party. You can read more here. You'll even find a recipe for a Halloween treat called "Soul Cakes."
The website Catholic Mom has an entire resource page dedicated to Halloween activities, recipes and ideas to help families have a Catholic Halloween. Visit the page here.
Finally, check out these creative, "Catholic" pumpkins from the Catholic Cuisine blog.

However your family decides to celebrate, the team at Spirit Catholic Radio wishes you a safe, blessed and happy Halloween.
