Weekly Liturgy Lessons for Children

Help Children Draw Closer to the Weekly Gospel with a New Unit Study Series Designed for Kids ages 6-10.

Bring the Gospel Message to Young Children All School Year!

These Lessons Will Bring God’s Word to Life for Children!

Weekly Liturgical Lesson Student Sheets

This Lesson Series Is Flexible!


What started with a resource request from one enthusiastic Salvatorian priest,
has blossomed into a brand-new lesson series for children that teaches God’s Word in a way that is fun, easy, and meaningful.

Weekly Liturgy Lessons for Children

Bring the Gospel Message to Young Children All School Year!

This program is designed to help young children understand God’s Word in the holy Gospels throughout the school year from September through May. Lessons may easily be incorporated into Sunday school programs, CCD classes, or for religious instruction in the classroom or at home. This series is most useful for students aged 6-10 who have some basic reading and writing skills. However, teachers may alter their delivery of the lessons to meet the needs of slightly older or younger students. By using such tools as group discussion, reading aloud, drawing, and game play, even the littlest Catholics are sure to glean God’s message.

These Liturgy Lessons Will Bring God’s Word to Life for Children!

The units are engaging yet simple as they focus on only one key point from the weekly Sunday Gospel. Each lesson includes a packet for students as well as a teacher’s guide. The instructor guide contains: a lesson plan, scripture reference, an answer key, a version of the student materials, and extension materials. For ease in preparation, the lessons match the current Liturgical Year, yet remain undated to allow them to be used again in future cycle years.

Delivering God’s Message Has Never Been Easier!

Each lesson follows a consistent layout to provide continuity for students and teachers. The unit studies generally include:

-Student and Teacher Cover Sheets
-Student lesson worksheets
-Inclusive Teacher Guide
-Mini-Book
-Word Search Puzzle
-Scripture Trading Card
-Additional activities such as printable games, puzzles, coloring sheets, or creative activities.

Some lessons also feature word wall term pieces, vocab sheets, notebooking sets, and bulletin board display activities.

There are opportunities in the lesson for Scripture reading, class or small group discussion, writing, drawing, and coloring. Teachers are encouraged use the lesson and activities to fit the needs or abilities of students, or to meet the allotted class schedule.


 Student Lesson Sheets

There is a standardized thematic lesson sheet that focus directly on God’s Word in each lesson. Additional printables are included for lesson reinforcement and fact recall. Most lessons include a word search, writing sheet, and a lesson based cloze activity that reiterates the main paragraph from the student lesson sheet, along with other activity sheets.

Teacher Lesson Guide

The teacher guide includes a full lesson plan, which you may alter to meet the specific needs of your program or learners. The plan includes a Gospel focus sheet with the week’s Gospel reading, vocabulary focus, and lesson highlights. It also includes a layout that will take you from gathering, through the lesson to closing. As well, the guide contains a copy of all student content and matching answer sheets.


Lesson Extensions

Each liturgy lesson contains fun activities or extensions, which are found immediately following the lesson plan pages. Some activities are based on creativity and some on game play.

The Play to Learn Lesson Extensions will always include a thematic word search puzzle, and generally, one additional game.

The Create to Learn Lesson Extensions include a standardized mini-book, which is titled according to the liturgical year.  This book does not provide writing prompts to allow the most flexibility for students and teachers.  Additional thematic mini-books with writing prompts may be available for some lessons.  Children are also encouraged to decorate their lesson cover in a creative way, which is explained in each lesson plan.  Some lessons also include additional creative activities such as F3 pieces, coloring sheets, tenties, mobiles, bookmarks, door hangers, or posters.

All of our activities aim to be classroom friendly, easy to complete, and self-contained requiring minimal supplies and very few extra materials.

Take Home Materials

Although children may take home all of their lesson sheets and creations, they should also have a tangible reminder of God’s Word. Every single Weekly Liturgy Lesson in this series includes a Get the Gospel! printable scripture trading card featuring specific ways to grow in faith or live out the Gospel at home.


Weekly Liturgy Lesson series is provided for the traditional school year of September through May

New lessons are added according to the liturgical calendar of the current year.
