Everyone wants that pretty Catholic planner that uniquely expresses themselves, but not everyone has big bucks to throw at one. The Catholic Through The Year planner {now called DAYBOOK} allows you to experience a variety of purchase options, from the $9 PDF printable download* that allows you to print up this beautifully crafted, well-thought out planner as best fits your needs OR you can opt to purchase the printed copy, which is still extremely competitively priced at $40 for 6.75″x9.25″ – and SHIPPING is always FREE.  

These planners are only offered twice a year, and once the hard copies are sold out, that’s it until the next season! PDF versions are available as long as the timeline of the planner is still in effect. PDFs are made available for purchase once the HARD COPIES have shipped, so June 1 for the Academic DAYBOOK and November 1 for the Liturgical DAYBOOK.

No matter which version you buy, this planner is completely customizable, with lots of blank space for you to set up. It includes a meaty section of prayers, includes daily Mass readings from the Novus Ordo, and feast days for both the ordinary and extraordinary form, making its reach like no other Catholic PDF downloadable planner out there! Additionally, you have a place to do an Ignatian daily examination of conscience, and a place to do a Spiritual Sketch, where you can jot down your spiritual goals and track them through the year. It doesn’t stop there! Fun features include a place to jot down the temps for the week, track your water intake, and monthly goals! 


PDF FILE – 208 pages {page #s vary from edition to edition} 8.5″ x 11″ downloadable pages to print using your own home printer or take to a printer to have it professionally printed – your choice! {you can also adjust your printer to print it in booklet size, making it the perfect size for tossing in your purse}

Liturgical DAYBOOK planners begin with the start of the Church calendar, the first Sunday of Advent and ends with the Saturday before the following Advent begins. 

Academic DAYBOOK  planners begin with July and run through the following June, making it more utilitarian for both students and homeschooling families who start school earlier in the summer.

She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.

    • Martina Kreitzer - Hi Talita!

      I reset your timeline to 30 days. You will have 30 days to download again. Thanks! 🙂August 23, 2015 – 12:04 pmReplyCancel

  • Lisa R. - I’m a part-time teacher so I printed this to use as my planbook. It was great to have the flexibility to print only the pages I needed or wanted. Instead of using a binder comb, I 3-hole-punched the pages and put them in a personalized binder. I put the cover picture in the slot on the front cover of the binder, and I put the Madonna of the Lilies on the back cover. It’s lovely! Thank you for making this available to us. I can’t wait to show it to the other school teachers tomorrow when we start our prep week. 🙂August 23, 2015 – 12:30 pmReplyCancel

  • Cathi Andrews - I am so so happy to have found “Catholic Sistas”!!!. My son had been reading me quotes from which he has (Pintrest) on his phone. I was investigating the source for this “factual” info he was telling me, and learned it was from a Freethinker source off Google. So I came on Pintrest to find more info about this site, and of course became distracted. Sometimes distractions are a good thing. It seems the creator of this Catholic Sistas, and I have a lot in common: Homeschooling, Catholic Art, calendars (so LOVE LOVE LOVE), organizing. I am thrilled. God Bless you with many graces, in Jesus precious name! Cathi Andrews.July 19, 2016 – 2:16 pmReplyCancel

    • Martina Kreitzer - Jennifer,

      I’d love to be able to offer more options, but for now, I have to stick with my current plan or I end up being stretched too thin. I will definitely consider it if more requests come in, though. 🙂September 8, 2016 – 12:09 pmReplyCancel
