Catechist-Friendly Leader Guides
We know how difficult it is to raise up the next generation of Catholics. That’s why we’ve created catechist-friendly resources that are designed to maximize the effectiveness of your volunteer catechists so they are excited to come to class each week and happy to teach these Catholic Moments year after year.
Take a Look Inside BLESSED
We are driven by the belief that everything we do as Catholics should be world-class. Check out the workbooks and leader guides to see what makes BLESSED a game-changer.
This workbook does more than prepare children for First Communion. It instills in them a life-long love for their faith. Coupled with a leader guide that offers step-by-step instructions for each session, children and volunteer catechists will look forward to coming to class each week.
You’ve never seen a sacramental prep program like this. Through rich visuals and relatable content, this captivating workbook helps children develop a personal relationship with God. And volunteer catechists will love the discussion questions, suggested activities, and more in the leader guide.
What Makes BLESSED Unlike Anything Else?
Cognitive retention in children between the age of six and nine is directly linked to emotional connection—and nothing connects with children at this age quite like animation. So we designed a program that engages their senses to enhance their learning and help them apply simple, practical lessons to their own lives.
We asked pastors, DREs, and catechists across the nation what their biggest challenges were when teaching First Communion and First Reconciliation. And we listened. BLESSED gives you the world-class tools you need to powerfully impact the way the next generation of Catholics experiences the faith.
You told us you wanted resources that draw parents into the process. That’s why we made the entire BLESSED program available online for free and created an email program that allows parents to experience BLESSED alongside their children. We are also recording an audiobook that parents can listen to on their own or with their children.
