Pilgrims of the Holy Family Handbook
Kerry and Nancy MacArthur

A Catholic alternative to 4-H and Scouts for boys and girls ages 10 and up!

This family activity program is designed to teach proficiency in a variety of life skills for the purpose of developing well-rounded young men and women. Highly recommended!

Theater, Astronomy, Architecture, and Swimming are just a sample of Achievements in five categories, or "Paths," designed to reflect our own pilgrimage toward our Heavenly Father. Each completed path forms a step named after the five pilgrimage sites of the Middle Ages: Canterbury; Cologne; Compostela; Rome; Jerusalem.

When two-thirds of the activities in a path are completed, participants advance to "Canterbury Pilgrim." After completing two paths, they advance to "Cologne Pilgrim," and so on. There's no "right" order to the completion of activities in any one subject area. This flexible program was designed to accommodate a variety of approaches. This ideal enrichment program is a family-focused, Catholic alternative to scouting and 4-H.

Pilgrims of the Holy Family can also be utilized for physical education. Over half the activities in the Woodsmanship Path would be suitable for this purpose: for instance, Athletics, Cycling, Hiking, Physical Fitness, and more.

Use with your own family or combine with others to form a Multi-Family Group. The second edition features an expanded introduction, updated resource section, and helpful tips and suggestions to start your own Pilgrims of the Holy Family Group. Softcover. 124 pgs. 8½”x11”

High-quality badges are available to encourage, motivate, and reward.

“I have just reviewed the Pilgrims Handbook and I was very impressed. So easily can this approach fit all types of families, homeschoolers, public, private schooling families. More importantly this type of club would seem to encourage parents to 'live' and learn with their children authentically experiencing life, seeking new skills and horizons; and best of all, all activities are loosely woven around the Catholic Faith. So a parent can link together how God is really tied to everything that is worthwhile in life; and many of the worthwhile things are small and incremental as we and God build - who we are.”
