Stations of the Cross for Young Catholics
Number of pages: 24
An invaluable resource for teaching young people ages 8 to 13 how to pray the Stations of the Cross.
The Stations of the Cross honours and remembers the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus; this prayer connects Catholics of all ages and reminds us of Christ’s great love for all of us.
Recognizing that younger Catholics, in both parish and school settings, know less about the traditions of their faith than earlier generations did, Stations of the Cross for Young Catholics is designed to lead young people through the Stations one by one. Young readers are encouraged to pray the Stations by themselves, with family members or with classmates. Each Station includes scripture references, a reflection and a prayer.
Intended for children ages 8 to 13, the book’s end notes show teachers, catechists, parents and grandparent show this resource can be particularly useful for ongoing faith formation.
