If you ever dreamed of a Catholic magazine which would capture your children’s
interest immediately yet hold it as they delved deeper, look no further than St. Mary’s Messenger.
This attractive magazine, for 7-12-year-olds, entertains as it deepens faith at the same time.
Everything from the colour scheme, the layout and quality of images to the fascinating interactive fun pages tell me that professional staff, who also understand children, put this publication together.
The editors and writers must be parents and/or teachers because they know what appeals to real kids. Kids can smell a phony, pious publication a mile away, but the tone of St. Mary’s Messenger is direct and unpretentious with a vibrant spirituality that connects with real kids.
Melanie Jean Juneau is wife and mother of nine children. The very existence of a joyful mother of nine children seems to confound people. Her writing is humorous and heart warming; thoughtful and thought provoking with a strong current of spirituality running through it. Part of her call and her witness is to write the truth about children, family, marriage and the sacredness of life.She blogs at joy of nine9 and mother of nine9
