We Learn About™ Our Parish Church teaches children in second through fifth grades about the spaces and furnishings in their parish home and how they serve in the liturgy. The familiarity that children gain about the church and its furnishings will encourage their participation in the liturgy. Activities such as drawing their own church help to reinforce the concepts contained throughout the book.
When we come to our parish church, we are at home in a space in which we worship with others. This book lets you get to know the parts of your parish home. You will discover how the spaces in the church and the furnishings serve the liturgy.
