Let Us Attend: Sunday's Gospel for Children


Illustrated handouts of the each Sunday's Gospel for every Sunday are offered at five levels with discussion questions. It is paraphrased for the younger grades, and presented as it will be heard for the older students. Engaging graphics and great questions--it can be used as the curriculum for a small church school, or by parents who wish to read the gospel on Saturday night with their children. Additionally, a Reader's Theater page is now available for each Gospel. Those who have used Let Us Attend materials report that the children are more attentive to the Gospel Reading at the Divine Liturgy. Two audio files are available each Sunday--one for the younger children, told by a master storyteller, and one for the older children, a reading of the Gospel.
