Encourage Children to Think About the Sacrament of Holy Orders with the Acrostic Worksheet for the Word Priest.
This Acrostic Worksheet for the Word Priest provides lines for an acrostic poem to be written; there is one line for each letter. Decorative letters accompany each letter in the word. The individual letters serve as gentle reminders of truths of the Faith - (P) Priest, (R) Resurrection, (I) Incense, (E) Eucharist, (S) Shepherd and (T) Thorny Crown.
How to Use the Acrostic Worksheet for the Word Priest
Some teachers may want to discuss the priesthood, the Sacrament of Holy Orders, or how priests are Christ's shepherds before beginning this activity.
There are two versions of this worksheet - one in color and the other in black-and-white. To complete the activity, challenge students to use each letter in the word priest to start a word or phrase that tells something about priests or the work they do in the Church. If you are using the black-and-white version, some learners may enjoy coloring the little images provided.
