”Blessings and Prayers through the Year is a wonderful resource for any faith formation program, no matter how large or small it might be. This volume is also a rich resource for those who home school. From fall through the peaceful joy of summer, many of the ordinary celebrations we might overlook are offered to us through song and prayer...The accompanying music CDs are among the best I have encountered in religious education resource material. The songs are truly singable! They are upbeat, clearly understandable, and inviting. My parish catechists used the CDs and gave the songs high marks.” --Judith Brusseau, Director of Religious Education at Holy Trinity Catholic Church (Washington, DC), Pastoral Music, November 2005
