Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 4th Sunday of Easter.
Use this unit study to help teach children that the Church helps us to follow Jesus. It is based on the Gospel of St. John 10:1-10.
This lesson focuses on the proverb that Jesus shared in which He likens Himself to the door to a sheepfold. Christ is clear in His message that those who enter into a life founded on His love and teachings will be saved and enter into eternal life with Him. Christ established the Church to help, teach, and guide us. The priest represents the Church and acts as our local shepherd uniting us to God when he celebrates the Sacraments.
