100 ACTIVITIES BASED ON THE CATECHISM

$12.95

Sometimes when teaching children an aspect of our Catholic Faith, it is helpful to have a special activity to reinforce the lesson. They need exercises that train the mind or move the heart. For this reason, Catholic teachers and parents will appreciate these one hundred thoughtfully crafted activities drawn from the new universal Catechism of the Catholic Church. The worksheets, memory games, Bible studies, etc. in this book require little preparation or materials and are designed to supplement any catechetical text or program for children in grades 1 through 8. Though simple to use, these exercises uncover some of the depth and richness of Catholic doctrine and practice. Topics of the activities are organized according to the four pillars of the Catechism -- Faith, Sacraments, Morality and Prayer. Each activity is self-contained, perforated to tear out and reproduce for group use. Whether it is memorizing the Creed, understanding the Bible, or learning to pray, these exercises will enrich the faith of children and those who teach them.

ACTS OF SALVATION

$33.95

These eight play scripts, each with music suggestions from well-known contemporary and theater sources, enable Christian communities to tell the story of their faith in a dramatic new way. The plays use various theatrical devices -- humor, surprise, conflict, and parallel storytelling -- to take a fresh look at the situations and characters found in Scripture. The Advent plays are set in heaven, the cast usually angels. The scripts encourage audience participation -- one play even commissions the congregation as extra angels for the Good News season to come. The Passion plays use both traditional and contemporary settings, but the music suggestions come right from Broadway, the movies, and other popular sources. The dramas have all been performed in churches, both to support worship services and to help congregations -- both players and audience -- become more engaged in familiar stories. Includes an appendix of opening and closing prayers for each play and permission to photocopy each script for rehearsal purposes.
