Bio: Colleen says, “I am a wife, mother of four and grandmother of six with a graduate degree in Catholic Doctrine. I have spent many holiday seasons preparing for feast day celebrations both in the home and in parishes. My blog is an opportunity for me to share information on the seasons and feasts of the liturgical year plus some of the delicious recipes that have been associated with these celebrations. I am very interested in incorporating current celebratory foods into our feast day celebrations. I plan to publish this blog once every two weeks.
