Children's Daily Prayer 2022-2023

Karla Hardersen

Designed to be led by students, these short prayer services will deepen and enrich classroom prayer every day of the school year. For teachers, parents, principals, and religious educators, helpful introductions provide background on each liturgical season, along with advice on preparing the worship space and getting children involved in the service. Prayers are also provided for use at home, before meals, and at the end of the day to encourage family prayer throughout the week. With Children's Daily Prayer, you can form your students in the rich tradition of Roman Catholic prayer, guiding them as they become acquainted with the rhythms and rituals of Catholic worship.

Scripture readings from the evangelist for the year have been selected to help children become familiar with important Scripture stories and themes. In addition there are prayers for before meals and at the end of the day, as well as prayer services for the liturgical seasons and special feasts, and reproducible prayer services for children to take home to their families to celebrate occasions when they are not in school.

Instructions for parents on using the book with their children at home, and how to set up a prayer space are included.

Children's Liturgy of the Word 2022-2023

Children’s Liturgy of the Word provides liturgy preparation pages and liturgy guides for every Sunday and Holyday of Obligation. Each liturgy guide includes words of dismissal for the priest celebrant, an open and closing prayer, petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful, and the full text of an interactive homily/feflection that connects the Word to the life experiences of children.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word allows the power of the liturgy to act on children, facilitating their growing relationship with God and allowing them to testify to their own experiences of God’s presence. Instead of following a traditional classroom model of a lesson followed by an activity or game, this resource closely follows the structure of the Liturgy of the Word being celebrated in the main assembly, as stipulated by the Directory for Masses with Children and the introduction to the Lectionary for Masses with Children. This resource makes leading a liturgically appropriate celebration of the Word easy, even for inexperienced leaders.
