Prepare children for the Easter Vigil with this handout

Build a lesson around “The Easter Vigil,” a three-page handout in the spring 2014 edition of PGW Online, to prepare children to celebrate the holiest night of the year. Just click on the link at the bottom of this page to register, if you haven’t already, then select “Feasts of the Season.” You’ll also find reproducible activities for children from preschool through junior high including a “Make an Easter Prayer Basket,” “What Is the Triduum?” and “Holy Week Crossword.” PGW Online is free, a service of Pflaum Gospel Weeklies.

What’s new in faith formation? Visit us at NCEA

If you’ll be at the 112th annual NCEA convention in Pittsburgh April 22-24, stop by booth 605 for a special presentation of the new Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program. Matt Lekan, our Midwest regional manager, and other Pflaum staffers will be there to answer your questions about this exciting, liturgy-based approach to children’s catechesis. The program is affordable (less than $12 a year per student), and has been found in conformity with the Catechism.

Coming in the fall: our new bilingual editions

Bilingual editions of What the Church Believes and Teaches, the catechism handbooks that are an integral part of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies program, will be available for the 2014/15 school year. They are ideal for parishes or schools that need an effective bilingual component in their catechetical program. The handbook for each level covers all the Church teachings that are necessary for that age group. To learn more, click here.
