Finding God

Finding God offers parents and families materials specifically designed for use at home whether catechesis takes place in the parish, school, or home. From at-home, family friendly lesson plans, to interactive study guides, to the exciting online game Fishers of Faith, the activities listed below will refresh your own faith while helping you become an active partner in your child's faith formation.

The Catholic Connections Handbook

The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers by St. Mary's Press provides a comprehensive program to foster the faith of young adolescents and help them make the connections between the Catholic faith, their everyday life, and their faith community, which will strengthen their Catholic identity and inspire them to participate more fully in the Church's mission.

The Catholic Faith Handbook

The Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth by St. Mary's Press is an easy-to-understand and practical guide to all things Catholic. The handbook helps the young person gain the foundational catechesis to present him or herself as a Candidate for Confirmation.
