The resources you will find in this part of the website will help you to understand the importance of catechesis in the family and the parish community.  In addition to general resources there are also suggestions for celebrating the important moments in the cycle of the Church's year, and offer some practical resources that can be used in parishes or at home.

General Resources

Messy Church provides ideas and resources for parishes, and for families to use at home. 

Wednesday Word, familiar to parishes and schools, offers activities centred on the Sunday readings that families can do at home

CAFOD’s KidzZone offers games, films, prayers and printable activities.

Catholic Mom and Catholic Icing  These two American websites offer reflections, activities and crafts for children & families.

Seasonal Resources

The Church follows a Liturgical Calendar that connects the seasons of the year to the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus, providing us with a framework to enter more deeply into the Paschal Mystery of our Lord. The liturgical year encompasses the rites, celebrations, and feasts that take place during the Church year and are highlighted in the Scripture readings and prayers of the Mass.
