GIVEAWAY: We’re Mixing It Up This Year on Our Fifth Anniversary!

Friends, can you believe it’s been FIVE YEARS since the beginning of Catholic Sistas? I look back with so many fond memories of what this small apostolate has accomplished over the years, and I thank God for the opportunity to have been able to share our small slice of the internet with you all. This year, we are mixing it up a bit and doing a giveaway that ties in some of our favorite ways to engage you all – food! 

Over the years, we have shared testimonials with you, how-to’s, created a library of resource articles, shared heart-breaking stories of pregnancy and infant loss, celebrated the joys of choosing life, informed you about the abortion industry, hosted many prayer campaigns, given you hope and encouragement in homeschooling, and spread our wings into social media over the years, sharing memes and articles of interest that are prayerful, relational, funny, engaging, informative, necessary, and inviting. We even created one of the most amazing organizational tools to help you with your domestic Church – the Catholic Through The Year planner and bundles, which are a primary source of support to help defray the costs of the blog. 

We’ve even asked you What’s For Dinner? on a daily basis for many years now.

And guess what? Because the Mass is the ultimate banquet, a food theme to celebrate five years just seemed like a no brainer! 

This year’s giveaway is different because we wanted to tie in an everyday connection we make with our readers on social media using What’s For Dinner? as the inspiration and tie it into the domestic Church, which is full of reasons to pray, celebrate, and feast with great food and amazing fellowship with friends and family. 

As we head into year six, we ask for your continued prayers for the blog, the writers, and the good work coming from Catholic Sistas. 

This giveaway is like no other we’ve ever done and we hope you enjoy it. 

With sincere gratitude, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support through the years. May God bless each and every one of you. 🙂
