Why choose a liturgy-based program?

Each lesson in the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program flows from the words of Jesus Christ in the Sunday Gospels. Children learn their faith – including instructions in doctrine, sacraments, commandments, and prayer – within the rhythms and seasons of the liturgical year, encouraging a growing participation in the life of the parish community.

 

What grades does the program cover?

The Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation program is available in five age-appropriate editions for preschool through eighth grade.

What are the components of the program?

The program consists of a faith formation handbook – What the Church Believes and Teaches – for each child, plus 32 weekly Gospel-based lessons. Together they provide a unique alternative to the traditional textbook, especially for programs where class time is limited. The handbook is also available in a bilingual edition, Me fe católica. Teaching guides are free. Guides in English and Spanish are also available online.

How do the handbook and weekly lessons work together?

The handbook leads children to understand the basics of the Catholic faith; the weekly lessons inspire them to seek out ways to practice their faith in their daily lives. A special section in the weekly guides integrates each lesson with doctrine in the handbook.

How does the program involve parents?

The take-home booklet format provides the most effective communication tool between the school and parish of any program currently on the market. Every session reinforces the need for parents and children to actively participate in the Sunday Mass and the life of the Church.

How are the components delivered?

The handbook and the first set of eight weekly lessons are delivered together in August. Three subsequent shipments of eight lessons each are delivered in November, January, and March – allowing us to keep material current and fresh all year long.

Is the program in conformity with the Catechism?

All five editions of Pflaum Gospel Weeklies: What the Church Believes and Teaches have been found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
