What better way for parents to teach their children about the Catholic faith than to study it regularly? What better way to teach children to pray than to pray with them? It’s difficult to talk to your kids about your faith if you don’t know it yourself.Bringing Home the Word
is a Lectionary-based resource that can help your parish families reflect on the Sunday readings as well as other aspects of our Catholic faith. Each week, the main article relates the Sunday Gospel to our lives today. Sunday Best
discusses some aspect of our Catholic identity, while The Home Church
offers a faith-filled reflection and activity for families. The Prayer
can be used as a blessing before Sunday dinner or at bedtime. The Reflection Questions
can be great dinnertime discussion starters, too.
The best part is that, not only can you print as many of these as you need, you also have permission to print or post online bits and pieces of each issue—making it easy to deliver inspiration and education all week long.*
