Children’s Daily Prayer 2013 - 2014

Children’s Daily Prayer 2013 - 2014
Children's Daily Prayer is the perfect resource for catechists and Catholic school teachers looking for an easy and meaningful order of prayer to use with students.  Teachers have the option of two different prayers. The first is a weekly prayer written specifically about the Gospel Reading from the Sunday Mass. The second is prayer for each day of the school week based on a selected Lectionary Reading appropriate to the liturgical season and the needs of children. In addition to choosing the prayer you will use, teachers now have the option of using a long or short form of the psalms. The standard format of prayer services combined with flexible components make this the perfect resource for both teachers who have daily classes and teachers who only have classes once a week.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word 2013 - 2014: A Weekly Resource Children’s Liturgy of the Word 2013 - 2014: A Weekly Resource
Maureen A. Kelly

Children's Liturgy of the Word provides liturgy preparation pages and liturgy guides for every Sunday and holy day of obligation from September 8, 2013 through August 31, 2014. Each liturgy guide includes words of dismissal for the presider, an opening and closing prayer, petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful, and the full text of an interactive homily or reflection that connects the Word to the life experiences of children.

This resource is different from many of the other resources on the market. Rather than focusing on catechizing or entertaining the children, Children's Liturgy of the Word allows the power of the liturgy to act on children, facilitating their growing relationship with God and allowing them to testify to their own experiences of God's presence. Rather than following a traditional classroom model of a lesson followed by an activity or game as many other resources do, this resource closely follows the structure of the Liturgy of the Word being celebrated in the main assembly, as stipulated by the Directory for Masses with Children and Introduction to the Lectionary for Masses with Children. This resource makes leading a liturgically appropriate celebration of the Word easy, even for inexperienced leaders.

Children's Liturgy of the Word is written by Maureen A. Kelly, an internationally known catechist and lecturer. She has an MA in Theology from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium and has held parish, diocesan, and national positions in child and adult catechesis and formation. She is one of the founding members of the North American Forum on the Catechumenate.

Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families 2013-2014
provides a simple and approachable way for families to integrate what they hear at Sunday Mass into their daily lives.

Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families gives a quick rundown on the Gospel story, a brief reflection on its impact on life, and ways of thinking about the story as a family as you go to and from church. Using this tool is a great way to help the family share at a deeper level about the Liturgy of the Word, naturally incorporating the Word into the family conversation.”

My Best Teachers were Saints: What Every Educator Can Learn from the Heroes of the Church
The lives of the saints are inspiring to many people, but they can be especially inspiring for teachers. For author and lifelong teacher Susan H. Swetnam, some of the best, most inspiring, and most insightful mentors she has are saints of the Catholic Church—and a remarkable number of these men and women were teachers themselves!

In My Best Teachers Were Saints, Swetnam describes the lives of 52 saints that will be especially inspiring to teachers. Some of the saints' lives offer lessons on how to overcome the teaching profession's unique problems; others show today's teachers how to identify successes that are often difficult to discern. All of the saints in this book will encourage teachers to persevere in the educational work that God has called them to do. 304 Pages, Paperback (Item #88672) $15.95

The Book of Saints & Heroes
The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you’ll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale’s back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome’s friend. You’ll see St. George fight the dragon, and you’ll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted.

But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you’ll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary — souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety.

These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike! 336 pages (Item #97816) $24.95

    Ministry Ideas for Celebrating Lent and Easter with Teens, Families, and Parishes
    by Judy Dankert, Marilyn Kielbasa, Marie Sajsa

    Like all of us, adolescents have a deep hunger for God. They have a need to make sense out of life and a desire to make the world a better place. They are people of endless hope, and have the capacity for deep sadness and profound joy. Their hungers, needs, hopes, and moments of sadness and joy mirror the experiences of biblical characters we meet during Lent and the Easter season. To meet the challenge of making Lent and the Easter season meaningful, parish and youth ministry efforts need to be intentional about bringing alive the Scriptures for each Sunday and special commemoration of the season.

    Ministry Ideas for Celebrating Lent and Easter with Teens, Families, and Parishes is a resource manual that provides activities for gathered sessions with youth in parish settings, as well as ideas for meaningful ways to observe the season with families and friends at home and in the community. At the core of the manual are gathered sessions with youth that are lectionary based, using themes from the Scriptures. Some sessions are specific to a particular Sunday in one liturgical cycle. Others are more thematically inclusive and may be used with all cycles. In addition to the gathered sessions, supplementary activities for the season include a guided meditation, a service project, and discussion activities that may be used in a variety of ways throughout the season. Also included are two chapters designed specifically for families. Each chapter contains several activities that will help families share faith stories and create memories. These activities can be sent home or adapted for use in a gathered environment. Paperback (Item #88609) $24.95

    Build Your Own Bethlehem: A Nativity Scene and Activity Book for Christmastime
    by Gertrud Mueller Nelson with Peter Mazar
    Here are all the characters—and then some—for building your own nativity scene! Each figure is yours to pop loose and set up as the days of Christmas unfold. There’s the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. There’s the stable with scampering mice and cooing doves that sit in the rafters. There’s the ox and ass and a flock of sheep accompanied by shepherds and their faithful dog. There’s an angel, of course, and a star. Epiphany’s three holy kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, are here too. And there are surprises—the gospel’s “senior citizens,” Anna and Simeon, who wait 40 days to meet their newborn Lord.

    This beautiful, full-color activity book (the pop-out figures are found inside) suggests eight occasions, from Christmas until Candlemas—a full 40 days—for using the figures to tell a portion of the nativity gospels, like a puppet theater! The art of Gertrud Mueller Nelson and the sturdy pop-out figures truly bring the Christmas stories to life.

    Building your own Bethlehem is a wonderful way to keep the spirit of Christmas alive well into the new year—perfect for home or classroom, perfect for every age.

    Celebrate these Advent and Christmas stories at home or in the classroom:
    • The annunciation to Mary

    National Directory for Catechesis

    Faith is nurtured and practiced at the heart of the human and Catholic families. Catechesis for life in Christ is led by many different people, requiring a multiplicity of materials. The new National Directory for Catechesis (NDC) is the resource that provides the inspiration for all catechesis in the United States and the reference point for formation of catechists and preparation of catechetical materials. A companion to the General Directory for Catechesis, the NDC builds on its themes and contextualizes catechesis within the life of the Church in the United States, paying close attention to ongoing social and cultural challenges. At its core is a desire to renew catechesis in dioceses, parishes, and schools, to fire a new energy and commitment to proclaim the Gospel. Comprehensive in scope, the NDC provides the fundamental theological and pastoral principles and offers guidelines for applying those principles within the catechetical mission of the Church in the United States. The NDC is divided into ten chapters that delve into the catechesis and diversity, evangelization, the faith of the Church, methodology, worship and sacraments, moral formation, the settings for catechesis, those who catechize, catechetical ministry, and resources. Throughout the NDC, it is reinforced that Jesus is the heart of catechesis regardless of where catechesis takes place. The NDC is a “must-have” for anyone in catechesis or Catholic education—teachers, principals, directors and coordinators of religious education and youth ministry, catechists, and students in the field.

    Pray With Mary
    A Child's Book of the Rosary

    Nothing says "Catholic" like the rosary. That familiar string of beads is a common identifier of our Catholic tradition of honoring Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Because the rosary is such an integral part of our Catholic heritage, every Catholic child deserves to know why we pray it and how to pray it.

A total of 25 activities includes favorite formats like dot-to-dot, coloring, decoding, rebuses, drawing, crossword puzzle, crafts, and more.


    Activities include:
    "Fill and Feel": Create a rosary with a pencil on the illustration provided, then "feel the beads" by lightly touching the backside of the page.
    "A-maze-ing Faith": A three-way maze connects our hearts to God and our actions to love.
    "Creed Connections": Children learn the prayers of the rosary and see the connections between those prayers, the Trinity, and the core beliefs of our faith.

    100 Activities Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church
    by Ellen Rossini
    Sometimes when teaching children an aspect of our Catholic Faith, it is helpful to have a special activity to reinforce the lesson. They need exercises that train the mind or move the heart. For this reason, Catholic teachers and parents will appreciate these one hundred thoughtfully crafted activities drawn from the new universal Catechism of the Catholic Church.

    The worksheets, memory games, Bible studies, etc. in this book require little preparation or materials and are designed to supplement any catechetical text or program for children in grades 1 through 8. Though simple to use, these exercises uncover some of the depth and richness of Catholic doctrine and practice. Topics of the activities are organized according to the four pillars of the Catechism -- Faith, Sacraments, Morality and Prayer. Each activity is self-contained, perforated to tear out and reproduce for group use. Whether it is memorizing the Creed, understanding the Bible, or learning to pray, these exercises will enrich the faith of children and those who teach them.  Softcover, 125 pages (Item #84768) $14.95
