Missing religious education and Catholic school? Here are 7 fun resources to help you and your family keep the faith-learning going at home!

With kids out of school, Masses canceled and religious education classes disbanded for the foreseeable future, you may feel cut off or overwhelmed with how to continue to teach and share the beauty and joy of the Catholic faith within your home. Be not afraid, we’ve got you covered!

Here are some of our favorite resources:

1. Catholic Inspired (catholicinspired.com) and (https://www.catholicinspired.site)
Catholic Inspired provides free coloring sheets and activities for kids surrounding saints’ feast days, Mary, Jesus, Lent, Holy Week – you name it! Watch a YouTube video on creating a braided Palm Branch; download bead patterns of the Eucharist; and even view recipes connected to important events on the Church calendar!

2. Catholic Icing (catholicicing.com)
Celebrating Holy Week at home and not sure what to do with the kids? Catholic Icing’s got you covered.
