In December we celebrate St. Eligius

st eligius



 St. Nicholas

he holidays can be a heart-breaking time for those of us with loved ones who are ill or have passed away, and that includes our pets. 
I have found that many people would like to share their grief and concern about their animal companions, but are somewhat embarrassed.
That’s why we feature prayer circles on certain pages.
(We also include a grief hot-line and other health-related info.)

Prayer Circles for Pets
can be found at  St. Roch’s,  St. Gertrude’s  & St. Melangell’s  pages


Some other places to explore while you’re in our “Preserve”:

Angels Among Us

Angels Among Us features mostly Archangels

Celtic Connections

Celtic Connections features saints, sinners, heroes, gods and goddesses.

The Hildegarden

The Hildegarden features connections to Hildegard Von Bingen

(including our unique art work inspired by her own). 


Consider the Snowflake...

...one of nature’s most beautiful and bountiful mandalas
(at least here in Michigan!).
One of my favorite just-for-fun sites is “make a flake” where you use digital scissors to create a virtual snowflake (just like those we made as kids, but you can edit it, save it, share & print it).
Click on the snowflake to go there.
And also consider going to The Hildegarden Mandala Page for a lot more fun stuff. 

It’s all about Connections...

I’ve starting pinning items of interest connected to each saint in our “Preserve.”
They are mostly causes to consider and useful/interesting information.
(See their individual pages.)
