September 21: Feast Day of Saint Matthew

This post contains affiliate links.

On September 21, the Catholic Church celebrates the feast day of Saint Matthew.  Saint Matthew was a tax collector who was not liked by many and his fellow Jews were shocked to see Jesus calling Saint Matthew to follow Him.

Compared to other feast day celebrations that we have enjoyed, St. Matthew's feast day was very simple, but I hope meaningful and memorable for my children.

In the morning during our Couch Catechism time before we started our homeschool day, I read about St. Matthew from the Saints for Young Readers for Every Day, Vol. 2: July-December.

I LOVE this book so much and have learned so much about the Saints lives along with my children!  Seriously, it is the best kid-friendly Saint book that I have found so far and we have been reading from Vol. One or Vol. Two daily for several years now.

We also read about St. Matthew from the book Saints and Angels: Popular Stories of Familiar Saints.

While I was reading from the Saints and Angels book, my children had some chocolate coins that I bought at the party store 15 for $1.  I also placed the Saint Matthew peg doll on the table that I received at the Saint peg doll exchange that I participated in November 2015.

Easy, fun and frugal feast day celebration!

St. Matthew, pray for us!
