matheson_patricia70 Sacrament Starters for Children…And Those Who Teach Them – Patricia Mathson believes that children learn best by doing. We can teach them about their faith, and in this case about the sacraments, she says, but a hands-on approach works even better because it involves the whole child. These simple, beautiful, and indispensable activities from an experienced DRE offer ten creative ways to celebrate and learn about each of the seven sacraments. They can be used by any catechist, beginners as well as veterans, but also by parents because they offer a great way to teach about the sacraments at home. The activities include visits to the church, prayers, crafts, Scripture readings, stories about the saints, sacrament discussions, and outreach suggestions. What a great gift book for catechists and parents!

  1. Thank you so much for these helpful tools. It’s a wonderful way to help fill in the gaps to our lesson and also tie in the gospel to our Faith Formation classes. Hopefully it will get our young ones attenative and excited about mass. Sometimes they need a little encouragement. Anyway, I really appreciate your wonderul ideas.

    God Bless,
