Resources for Catechetical Leaders

The Office of Faith Events wants to support you during this difficult time in our world. Each week we will be sharing resources which reflect on the upcoming Sunday readings. Each week the Office of Faith Events will provide a Virtual Faith Formation Lesson Plan. The lesson will be organized into 3 areas: Gospel Reading, Activity, and Saint Reflection. We hope that these lessons and other resources will bring you closer to Jesus and help strengthen the faith of your church community.

May the love of God radiate from your church to the world.  If you have a resource, please feel free to share it with us.
