Catholic Children's Costumes

Children learn and grow as they play – and playing at being a saint is a wonderful way to grow.  It doesn’t matter if your child is home schooled, in Catholic school or attends public school. 

Learning about Our Lord and Our Lady and the glorious saints who lived and died in His Name are lessons that will last an eternity.

Many Catholic school children participate in All Saints Day pageants and are asked to make presentations about the Saints.  They join a long tradition of Saints, themselves, who have participated in plays about members of the Church triumphant. 

Perhaps the best known is the beloved Saint Therese who played the title role in a play she wrote in honor of Saint Joan of Arc.  She is pictured below in the costume she created – complete with a ball and chain!


Too often, we hear, the children are sad when it’s time to put away their costumes. There’s no need.  You can keep those Saintly activities going all year long with Name Day parties and opportunities for children to create their own plays about the Saints.

We hope you will explore our children’s books about the Saints to provide exciting reading while inspiring them to grow in courage and holiness – two qualities that go hand in hand!

Most families are more than a little worried about financesthese days. We are pleased, however to offer new resources for much less expensive costumes and tips on how to make your own even if you can’t sew!

Compare our price for a Saint Elizabeth of Hungary costume with our old source – almost half off!


And our new Saint Francis of Assisi is half the price!

Mothers have enough stress with just getting from one end of the day to the other, you really don’t need the extra anxiety about whether or not your costume will arrive on time and with all the correct pieces.  These companies offer worry free same day shipping without unreasonable high shipping costs.

I, too, can do without the stress of wondering if your order will be going out on time — or if you’ll get it at all. That’s why we’ve partnered with several large companies who are able to meet your needs quickly and efficiently.

Please be aware that some of the companies we link to do carry a full range of costumes – some of which you might find to be distasteful, so please just stick to the links we’ve provided. Trust me, I’ve gone through nearly all of their pages. I know what’s there, both good and bad.

You don’t need to tell me about it.

Like everything else in life:

Take the good, leave the bad.

Christine Hirschfeld

I never intended to run a Catholic antiquities and book business. Not in a million years. As a cradle Catholic, I grew up in a house that was filled with Catholic images and sacramentals not to mention an abundance of excellent books provided by family members who worked in publishing houses famous for their Catholic catalogues. The beautiful images and concepts presented in those books certainly had their effect in enhancing my identity as a Catholic. As the years passed, even in the midst of very un-Catholic settings, I became a repository for my friends’ Catholic “found objects.” Eventually, I had a family of my own. We’re a small family. There are just three of us. And two of us were born with the “junk collecting gene.” Garage sales attracted us like a magnet.
