Symbol of the Week:
Today’s symbol is a rainbow. A rainbow represents a special promise that God made to us.
Overview of Today's Lesson: God's Promises
Introduce the concept of Lent as a time of preparation for the great feast of Easter. Encourage your children to try their best to get closer to God during this time. We encourage and challenge you to make the most of the season of Lent in your own home. Our overall theme for Lent is PROMISE. Each week we will explore some part of the promise between God and us. Today we talked about the promise that God has made to each of us and the concept of two sides to an agreement (promise)
The Kids' Bulletin - Good Intro (PRINT)
The back page of this kids bulletin (linked below) is also a great introduction to the lesson each week.
Print this 4-page bulletin (double-sided) for each child. Each week there's a summary of the lesson, two activities and a comic about a Saint. To print, click the link and select download (You can also view it full screen). Save these in a folder to look back on as the week's go on.
This is also a great thing to read at the beginning as an introduction as you color the symbol of the week.
For the younger kids, print out a coloring page from Holy Heroes (Find later in the email)

Catholic Kids Video (SET UP)
Illustrated Introduction Video to today's liturgy.
Watch it at the beginning of your lesson after introducing today's topic.
Watch it a few times if you need to!
Just a note: Sometimes the Homily at the end of these videos does not end up exactly like the discussion for the rest of the lesson, but it's still a great kid-minded homily and usually can be worked in to the overall lesson.

Prayer, Discussion and Activity (PRINT AND SET UP)
Adorers of the Blood of Christ offers a great (and short) lesson plan for a Children's Liturgy. Scroll past the readings to find the plan that begins with a prayer, and ends with a discussion and small activity. Print it out beforehand and gather materials for the activity if necessary.

Holy Heroes Mass Prep video and coloring page!
Holy Heroes offers a Children's Mass Prep page each Sunday including a short video illustrating the Gospel of the Week. And also a coloring page with the date and a verse from the Gospel. Save the coloring pages in a binder/folder and you will be reminded of what you learned each week!
Keep in mind these are not always updated until Friday or Saturday so check back at this link if it's still showing last week's mass prep.
