The Pflaum Gospel Weeklies are based on the Sunday readings and apply the Gospel to the children’s lived experiences. This year, following the Liturgical Calendar, the children begin with Gospels from the Gospel of Luke (Year C). With the start of a new Church Year on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, we will be following the readings for Year A, which come mainly from the Gospel of Matthew. Get a handle on what your children already know about the Gospels. Pflaum offers “We Meet Jesus in the Gospels” / “Conocemos a Jesús en los Evangelios”—a free, online lesson available for each level, including:
- Seeds (English, Spanish)
- Promise (English, Spanish)
- Good News (English, Spanish)
- Venture (English, Spanish)
- Visions (English, Spanish)
These Gospel lessons include a plan with a materials list, gathering and closing prayers, music suggestions from the Pflaum music CDs, and activity guides. The lessons follow the same three-step process as the regular Gospel Weeklies—Share Experiences, Discover Gospel and Doctrine, and Live the Gospel. However, they are not linked to a specific Sunday Gospel and may be used at whatever point in the year you determine works best for your class.
Make reading the Gospels a cherished activity—in class and at home—by giving each of the children a copy of Pflaum’s new The Gospel for Young Catholics.
