Who are the Doctors of the Church? What makes them so special? What role did they play in forming our Catholic Faith and Identity?

Our Family Spice Packets strive to bring together YOUR Domestic Church. Learning about faith at home allows you to customize the lesson to the needs of your family. Enjoy this time with your family, especially during this quarantine. Learn together. Cook together. Eat together. Grow together. We hope and pray that our Family Spice Packets provide you with a new way to learn about your faith and become a stronger family.

This series The Doctors of the Church is inspired by the book, The 35 Doctors of the Church by Fr. Christopher Rengers. Each Family Spice packet includes a short lesson, a coloring page and a recipe that compliments the lesson. Lessons are intentionally brief but not lacking in a strong take-a-way. We remember better in bite-size portions. Several Family Spice Packets are available in the store as a FREE Download for you to sample. All finished Family Spice Packets are highlighted below in blue. Check back often as we are adding to our finished Family Spice Packets weekly.
