Religious Education at Home

Weekly Resources, Activities, Lessons, and Crafts

You are probably reading this from home, in response to being asked to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Schools are cancelled or are taking place on a remote platform, jobs have gone remote, and people are being asked to leave the house as rarely as possible. Your parish has also asked you to stay at home, attend services on-line. The Archdiocese has been working hard to develop ways for normal parish ministries to be brought into the home. Instead of just hitting “play” on a video to “teach” children, take this opportunity to dig into the teachings of the Church together so that they work on their Lenten journey as one. The weekly lessons have sections for various ages, but if you do not have time to work with each age group, try to at least utilize the “Family” section. You or your parish might want to organize small online groups with your church family to go beyond your “church in the home,” to a larger virtual experience of community too.

Every Saturday we will be uploading a new page with educational ideas to achieve at home:
