January Saint of the Month: St. John Bosco
January Virtue of the Month: Cheerfulness

Welcome to Oblate Academy!

Exposing our children to Christian practices, stories of the Saints, and experiences that model the virtues are important for their development of faith and cultivating a virtuous and purposeful life.

For the month of January, we created a special set of materials for you to educate the children in your life about St. John Bosco who exemplifies the virtue of Cheerfulness. His feast day is January 31. Below you will find age-appropriate biographies, teaching tips, activities, and coloring sheets to help your children grow in faith.

I hope you will enjoy these straightforward and easily understandable materials we have prepared to help you teach the little ones in your life.
