Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Our Coats of Many Colors

This is a great resource for costumes if you don't sew yourself or don't have time. I have a few that were given to me and they are very good quality - well made.

Since All Saint's Day is coming I thought I would share the link for those who may be looking for something.

I also read that they are working on providing small unit studies to accompany each costume. "The unit studies will include: biographical information, interesting stories, additional resources and historical fiction for further study, special prayers, customs and traditions, recipes and sometimes short plays or skits for those who enjoy making history come alive by reliving it."

They aren't sure when the unit studies will be available but the costumes are available right now and I am told that they sell out quickly.

These are great! If I can convice the kids to use them as Halloween costumes too, maybe I could afford them.    We do both Halloween and All Saints Day, but cheaply as our dress-up box and imaginations usually have enough raw supplies to make about half the costumes we need for free. I would dearly love to add some of these to our box....

Thanks for posting this! They are kind of pricey, but they look like good quality.
