Student Text

The Word of Life Student Text makes learning the faith effective, engaging, and fun with Bible stories, contemporary children’s stories, lives of the saints, and activities for a variety of learning styles.

The text consists of core lessons, as well as four liturgical season lessons. Images used in each chapter range from photographs depicting a real-life situation, contemporary art depicting a Bible narrative, and sacred art that depicts an event in salvation history to draw students into the mysteries of Christ, leading them to understand doctrinal elements of the faith more fully.

Every chapter has a page for parents that provides a brief summary of what the child learned in class and a variety of ways to live the faith in daily life.

Teacher Manual

Parish Catechist Manuals are written for catechists of all levels of formation. Using the ecclesial method, the detailed lesson plans equip catechists with an engaging presentation of the materials with little preparation required. Each lesson is written to help the catechist encourage dialogue that draws students into the lessons, where they not only learn facts about the faith but also know the why of the faith and how to live it out.

The Parish Catechist Manual brings together rich doctrinal presentation with effective pedagogy and methodology that will form and inform the catechists as they present the lessons.
