GOAL OF THE LITTLE
FLOWERS GIRLS’ CLUB
The Little Flowers Girls’ Club is a program whose goal is to provide young
Catholic girls, from age five and up, with an opportunity to gather and learn
about their Catholic heritage, faith and traditions,
well as other “womanly”
traditions that may have faded from view. It is hoped the Little Flowers would
learn what it means to be a Catholic girl and eventually a Catholic woman.
Whether she is called to a life of consecration to our Lord, as a single woman,
or as a wife and mother, what she learns as a Little Flower will give a strong
foundation upon which to build.

“How long should it take to do each
This process gives girls a month to complete each badge. If you
need more time, please feel free to go at your own pace.
The goal is to have your daughter learn
about the virtue, what it means, and how to live it out in her own
faith journey at her specific age level, with your help.
Some are very simple and can be done in a few minutes. Others may
take a few days over a period of time to work on,
say --memorizing a scripture verse.
“How does my daughter earn the badge
for this month’s virtue? What do I do as a mom?”
and daughters are encouraged to work on badges together. For
example, pg. 11 in your daughter’s member manual, for the virtue of
Faith: Find out from your daughter what activities that she did
with her garden group back on October 16. If you missed that
meeting because you recently joined, just jump right in with the
manual, and see what badge activities you would enjoy sharing with
your daughter. Any of the other suggested activities from the
complete list of ten that you think are appropriate for her age
level, abilities, and your family schedule may be done prior to the
next meeting. Some are very simple, others are more advanced for
older girls. An older sibling, a dad, a grandma, a Confirmation
sponsor, or a Godparent are also great role models to assist your
daughter with their badge work. Most of them would be proud and
honored to do so. Think of the faith sharing opportunities that you
can encourage this way!
“What does the program manual suggest
each for age level/developmental level should be able to do for the
is a general guideline from the leader manual which gives you a
basic idea of what a typical girl could accomplish for each age
level. Again these are just
suggestions. You know your daughter best. If you daughter can
do more or less, that is just fine. Pray with your daughter and ask
Jesus what He is calling you to.

Little Flowers Girls Club revolves around a four wreath cycle, meeting once per
month on the Second Thursday at 6:30pm for girls ages five to 14. Girls may join the club at
any time of the year. This is a mother-daughter program. Mothers are encouraged
to attend each of our monthly badge meetings. Older teens are encouraged to
help serve as leaders and mentors for younger girls in the program.

Flowers Calendar Events
Each month a virtue is
emphasized by associating it with a flower, a saint and a scripture verse.
Holy Bible, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, and books about
saints and the virtues are all incorporated in the garden meetings.
Flowers earn patches which reflect a virtue by doing works of service, praying, memorizing scripture verses and learning about a chosen saint.
and projects relating to the chosen virtue add to the fun. Within the garden
meeting, the girls will hear, read, share, and learn about
our role model, the
Blessed Virgin Mary, our patroness, St. Therese of Lisieux, saints of the
Church, and their own mothers. The Club invites
friendships and supports the
girls’ Catholic faith.
Girls will need a simple sash, member Wreath I. manual, name badge and a set of
Wreath I. patches in order to fully participate. Club shirts, skirts and
bandanas are optional. You may order materials from:
or tree nut products in any snacks due to girls with allergies!
