Hey everyone. I have a 1.5 year old son but he isn't baptized yet. I am going to get him baptized after Easter. I am a single mom and I have been trying to practice the faith for about 6 months to a year now after a period of falling away from the Church. Anyway, I have a little boy whose name is Colton. He is 1.5 years old and I want to start raising him in the faith as best I can but I have no idea where to start. I'm a convert to the Catholic Church so I have no idea how Catholics raise their children in the faith.
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
Sancta Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.
Amen

salus

Try to find a group of conservative Catholic homeschooling families in your area and if there is a Latin Mass parish nearby please join it you want priests who are serious about the faith.

Thanks for the advice salus! I appreciate it. What other advice might you have? I am wanting to show him how to pray and such but I have no idea how to get started.

When he gets a little older, there are a great many books he could read.

This website has some wonderful things:

They also have Rosaries for children:

This also looks like a nice Bible for children:

Holy Face of Jesus, I love you.

Have a blessed Lent, Fishies!
