Stations of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross depict the journey of Jesus to the Cross on Calvary. There is a beautiful tradition in the Catholic Church of praying the Stations of the Cross, accompanying Jesus on this journey, particularly during Lent. These resources are suitable for praying the Stations with children.
For those who have read and loved the book, Drawing God, by Karen Kiefer, the Drawing God Stations of the Cross offer a way for children to grow in their love for Jesus during Lent.
Praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary
Pope Francis says, “The Rosary is the most beautiful and the richest of all prayers. It is the prayer that touches most the heart of the Mother of God.” This resource will help children understand how to pray the Rosary and provides some thoughts on praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary during Lent.
