Journey of Faith for Children introduces children to the Catholic faith in a way that's easy for them to understand, using an engaging pastoral approach. Based on the ever-popular and long-running adult Christian initiation program from Liguori Publications, Journey of Faith for ChildrenM provides a solid catechetical foundation. The warm and engaging style of the Redemptorists speaks to children about faith topics in a way that starts them on a lifelong journey of knowing and loving Jesus.
The lessons in Journey of Faith for Children, Inquiry begin with the concept of faith in the Catholic Church and continue the exploration into many topics that are discussed further throughout the program. Some of the concepts include the Trinity, Jesus as fully human and fully divine, an introduction to the Bible, prayer life, the Mass, Church leadership, Mary, and the saints.
Children learn at their own pace. They learn by asking questions and by doing. That's why we've combined the lessons with a variety of engaging activities to appeal to a variety of learners in a way that's flexible enough for you to modify to your unique needs. Each lesson also includes a colorful animated drawing and ongoing story that captures children's attention and enables them to see their own faith journey mirrored in the fictional adventures of Mrs. Evans and her RCIA class.
The comprehensive Leader Guide gives you everything you need to walk into your RCIA class and start leading--whether you're a veteran RCIA instructor or a first-time volunteer. Additional discussion points prepare you for their responses and keep the conversation going. The contemporary wraparound design enables you to see what the children see so you can spend more time teaching and growing in faith alongside your group.
