Have fun learning about your Catholic faith with Father Francis, Mother Superior and her Nuns! They teach Benny, Louis, Anita, Peter, and John about their Catholic faith from their town of Saint Paul. Be sure to watch them every Saturday!

Anita - My Catholic Family
My name is Anita. I am 6. My favorite color is red. I like to play with Louis. To learn about our Faith, we pretend we are private investigators. My favorite prayer is the Guardian Angel prayer and my favorite meal is cinnamon cereal. I like to skate and my favorite saint is St. Anne because she is Jesus' grandmother. I also like to grow flowers and eat ice cream with my Mom and dad. When I grow up, I want to be a Mom.

My name is Peter. I am 7 and my favorite color is green. My favorite meal is a hamburger and French fries. I like to play basketball and chase frogs. My brother John and I watch college and professional football games with my dad. Sometimes, we also go fishing. My favorite saint is St. Peter because he received the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven from Jesus and, besides, I was named after him. When I grow up, I want to take care of the church like Benny, who says he is a sacristan.

Benny - My Catholic Family
I am Benny. I am the sacristan of the Monastery of St. Paul. I like my dog, Boomer, hot dogs and potato chips, the color grey, and praying the “Our Father.” I also like to play tennis, but I can’t get the ball to go over the net. My favorite saint is St. Anthony because he always helps me find the things I lose. I also like St. Rita of Cascia because she helps me to wake up on time, even when it seems impossible. When I grow up, I would like to be an architect so I could build pretty churches like Saint Paul's!

I am Mother Superior. I decided to become a nun when I was 18 years old. My favorite saint is Thérèse of Lisieux, who is also known as “The Little Flower.” She teaches us to do everything with great love because this pleases Our Lord who loves all of us very much. I really like to share Bible stories with children (who I call "My Little Angels"), read the Bible, and eat Sister Ignatius’ special cinnamon cookies.
