Ordinary Time: Easter to Advent

Build.Plant.Grow provides catechetical instruction for children based on the Sunday readings of the Christian Church during the period beginning with Advent up to and including the closure of the liturgical year with the Feast of Christ the King. These readings from the Lectionary are divided into three-year cycles: A, B, and C. In 2014-15, for example, readings are from Cycle B.

Lesson plans include a short exegesis of the readings, application to a children’s book, and the virtue that is common to the Bible readings and the children’s book, activities to extend the understanding of the virtue, practical advice for incorporating the virtue in an age-appropriate manner. Examples of the children’s books include such favorites as Love You Forever, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Giving Tree, and All the Places You’ll Go.
