RESOURCES FOR CHILDREN, YOUTH & FAMILIES


Most of the children in our parishes will be at home for potentially a long period of time. The Domestic Church comes to the fore here and we can offer opportunities to enrich the faith life of our families, encouraging parents to spend time talking to their children about our faith while having some fun.

Wednesday Word, familiar to parishes and schools, offers activities that families can do at home. http://www.wednesdayword.org/

CAFOD’s KidzZone offers games, films, prayers and printable activities https://cafod.org.uk/Education/Kidz-Zone
