Printables to Focus on Pope Francis

 

“Show everyone that to follow Christ and to put His Gospel into practice fills your hearts with happiness.” – Pope Francis

 


Help teach your students about our current vicar, Pope Francis. Use printables that allow you to explore the life and work of one of the most beloved pontiffs in history.  Many of our downloads may be used with external sources of information (Vatican website, news programs, etc.)  to encourage students to develop research skills.  As many people are excited about Pope Francis’ visit to the United States this year, now is a great time to teach children about who the Holy Father is and what he does as the leader of the Catholic Church.  Some printables feature the leadership of the Church or even the Jesuits.
