Introduce Young Catholics to the Leaders of the Roman Catholic Church
This worksheet introduces the common ordained leaders of the Catholic Church - the pope, bishops, priests, and deacons. It also provides a very general introduction to the early leadership of the Church (Christ, St. Peter, and the Apostles), and points out a function of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
Spaces are provided for students to tell how each leader is unique and serves the Church. Although an answer sheet is not provided, references to the CCC are provided at the bottom of the page to aid in discussion, completion, or correction.
This resource may be completed individually, as a class, or in small groups. It may function as a review sheet following a class lesson or discussion, a group activity, or a homework activity.
