Assist Children in Praying for the Faithful Departed - the Holy Souls.
Try this easy to use prayer project in your class on All Souls' Day or any day in November, the month dedicated to the Holy Souls. Children write the names or draw pictures of any four faithful departed souls - deceased friends, family members, parishioners, etc. The pieces are posted on a wall under the provided title piece and as a group, the children pray for the souls listed. The presentation can be kept up for the day, the week, or for the entire month of November.
This activity is well suited for CCD or Religious Ed. class use, and it can prompt children to learn the Eternal Rest prayer.
