February 2 is the feast of the Presentation of the Lord Jesus in the Temple. It commemorates Simeon’s famous prophecy that Jesus would be a “light of revelation to the Gentiles.” It is also known as Candlemas since it is the day that candles are blessed for use throughout the Church year.

Rosary Bingo- Students play regular bingo, but they answer questions about the Rosary. The teacher asks one student at a time a question from the list. The student answers the question and the class looks for the word(s) on their bingo card. The first student who gets five in a row (up, down, across, or diagonal) on their bingo card first, wins. You can play in teams or individually. (The teacher can give the students some hints to help them answer the questions correctly if needed.)








The Holy Rosary Game- Practice reciting the Holy Rosary while you compete against others.
