Celebrating the Lectionary® for Junior High provides 15-minute Lectionary-based catechetical sessions for every Sunday and Holyday of Obligation. It includes reproducible send-home pages for each Sunday and Holyday of Obligation that encourage adolescents to develop a practice of prayer and bring the message of the Lectionary into their daily lives.
This resource picks up where most textbooks or traditional catechetical programs leave off, providing young people with timely background and reflection on the seasons of the liturgical year and readings for each Sunday and Holyday of Obligation. Use of this resource as part of a junior high religion curriculum or faith-formation program will help adolescents to explore their Catholic identity through the words of the Lectionary, passages from major Church documents, and solemnities, feasts, and memorials of the liturgical year. This resource is written for use with junior high adolescents in grades 6-8 (approximately ages 11- 14).
