The Gospel at Home

Designed for busy families, The Gospel at Home provides a short description of the Sunday Gospel plus suggested activities and discussion starters for each age level. These easy-to-do ideas will bring families together to share what each member has learned about the Gospel that they heard on Sunday (and studied in class). Print them out to send home or send as a link in a weekly email. Available in English and Spanish.


Lesson Updates

Here you will find information specific to lessons and Teaching Guides—when new material has been added to the website, corrections or additions to printed material (e.g., the editors forgot to put the answers to a quiz in a Teaching Guide), or even a video showing how to assemble a booklet or craft project. We will list these items by week and lesson level. If you see something we’ve overlooked, email, and we will add it here.

Weekly Review Template

Children will better understand and retain the Sunday Gospel concept when they can express it in their own words and drawings. They practice their prayers in order to learn them by heart, so they can pray them on their own and with others. Catechists and teachers may print weekly review templates for the children to complete at home or attach them to a weekly email. Weekly review templates can be found in both English and Spanish.
