Pflaum offers NEW premium content for Gospel Weeklies and Children Celebrate! customers.
These videos and coloring pages can be shared with anyone in a parish program or school that subscribes to the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies, Children Celebrate!, or the Sunday Missal for Young Catholics. Catechists and teachers may share these resources with families using these programs.
(approx. 6 min. total length) Each video has three sections:
Every week, Miss Heidi (Heidi Witte) presents a short video reflection about the Sunday Gospel. Seeds and Promise (and some Good News) catechists and teachers may wish to enhance their class sessions by sharing Miss Heidi’s reflection following the proclamation of the Sunday Gospel.
Saint in the Spotlight
Following the Gospel Reflection, Miss Heidi puts a saint “in the spotlight” and shares about that saint, using language and examples that young children can understand and relate to.
Following the Saint in the Spotlight, Miss Heidi offers a short closing prayer. Note that this feature is targeted for parishes that use the Gospel Weeklies or Children Celebrate! for Children’s Liturgy of the Word during Sunday Mass. Those using the Gospel Weeklies in a classroom setting may come back to this closing prayer at the end of their class session if the prayer fits with the theme of their lesson.
Young children love to color! Along with each week’s video, Miss Heidi creates a coloring page related to the Sunday Gospel. Download and share this with the young children in your group or send it home for the children to complete later.
