Bring Catholic Culture Home!
January 2008 — A convert to the Catholic faith, Constance Malewski enjoys bringing beauty and a sense of the sacred into the life of her family by building
In her new book, Building Home Shrines: Bringing Catholic Culture into our Homes & Schools through Art, Symbols, & Sacramentals, Connie explains how to make pedestals and backdrops, achieve unity through theme, materials, and color, share your faith by building shrines with children, and make “pocket shrines” to carry anywhere! Nineteen color photos by Stephanie Hesse illustrate these simple techniques and provide plenty of ideas to get started.
Constance Barrett Malewski resides in St. Joseph, Missouri. Her passion for traditional Catholic art led Connie to establish a business, “Colorful Saints,” in partnership with her sister, Kathy Hesse. Connie and Kathy restore sacred statues, that these reminders of God’s love may inspire future generations.
