Music has the ability to support learning, enhance celebration, and build a deeper understanding of our faith. In this workshop, renowned family educators John Burland (composer) and Heidi Witte (teacher/catechist) will share a variety of songs and strategies to help children learn the core beliefs of our faith. These catechetical songs cover a variety of themes including Scripture, doctrine, and sacraments. This workshop will also demonstrate how the addition of prayerful gesture or signing can further enhance the teaching and learning process. Come join John and Heidi as we celebrate the gift of our faith through song.
