7QTF: Catholic Date Ideas

7_quick_takes_sm1Linking up with Jennifer and the others!


Knights of Columbus pancake breakfast.

(Let the men do the cooking!)


This is a Google image, not Mr. Sweet.


Volunteering at with Catholic college’s alumni group to package meals for the homeless.

(Co-workers in the vineyard.)



Ordination Mass.

(Definitely puts attending those umpteenth weddings in perspective.)


My favorite part.


Living Rosary.

(The couple that prays together…you know the rest.)



Touring a beautiful Shrine.

(What do you want to do first: the Stations around the pretty pond or light a candle in the chapel?)



And of course, attending Mass.

(Ohmigosh. Hold hands during the Our Father? And how do we do the sign of the peace?)



Book: It’s May! That means it’s National Celiac Awareness Month! Part of Gloria Jean’s story is to reconcile the notion of the theology of the body—that she can learn about God from her body—when her body can’t even receive God (in the form of bread).

Obviously, dates involving food could be tricky to navigate for people with severe Celiac and want to avoid cross contamination. Gloria Jean worries about this, but when she’s older and on real dates (spoilers for the moms– of course I have this 14-year-old realize one-on-ones are inappropriate), she’ll have more and more options. A handy dandy list.

  1. Love em! I’d add that my husband and I like to start Saturday evening dates with going to confession. Oh, and though we don’t get many opportunities, we love to go for Adoration dates; sometimes we spend the time writing each other letters.

    • Thanks, Stephanie! I love your ideas, too! We actually did a Saturday date with confession, which was so early, that we ended up swinging at the church playground before the Vigil and then Mexican. Yum! 🙂
