FAMILY FAITH RESOURCES
Works of Mercy
Jared Dees from The Religion Teacher offers excellent (and short!) videos and articles that explore different topics related to our Catholic faith. Many of these resources are helpful for catechists. Check out his recent video that describes the Works of Mercy.
St. Michael, St. Vincent de Paul, and Padre Pio are well-known saints who have feast days in September. Check out the 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!
