All Saints Day video for young children
Soon, we will be celebrating a "triduum" of sorts in the Catholic Church: Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day. What exactly is All Saints Day? This short video explains it!
Check out the October saints word search from Real Life at Home, and see if you can find the words in bold!
Busted Halo's website offers a different reflection for each day (called a "microchallenge"). They also have a wonderful video collection relating to a variety of Catholic topics. Check out their site here.
Faith Formation curated playlist
A new trend in Catholic Church religious education is "curated Faith Formation playlists." To see an example, click here. The concept is similar to a music playlist that you might create on a popular video or audio app ~ but Faith Formation playlists include lots of wonderful faith inspiration! Stay tuned for a special curated playlist coming soon for Faith Formation here at CTK!
