Boy Praying - Sunset

Resources from Catechetical Publishers: 

Loyola Press

From all of us at Loyola Press, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the COVID-19 virus. As a Catholic publisher, our mission is to provide you with the resources you need to facilitate transformative experiences of God for the children and families you serve.  

In light of the current situation, we would like to remind you that as a Finding God customer, you have numerous, free, at-home family resources available, including at-home, parent-led lesson plans.  

We understand that interruptions in faith formation due to unanticipated events such as school or parish closures can impact children’s spiritual development as well as their need for stability and consistency. Our resources can help children stay engaged in their faith journey, provide them valuable learning experiences, and offer continuity in Christ during this challenging time. 

Parents can always access at-home resources at www.findinggod.com/family

  • At-Home Editions: These guides allow parents to conduct catechesis with their children in the home. For families with children in multiple grades using Finding God, utilize this Parent Quick Guide.
  • Interactive Session Reviews: Session reviews allow children, parents, and instructors to gauge learning objectives. Results can be emailed to a teacher or catechist along with student questions. 
  • Study Guides: Single page study guides outline important faith topics in each session. 
  • Raising Faith-Filled Kids: For parents who may not have the time or confidence to teach a full lesson, this resource provides background on the session and encourages parents to discuss faith topics with their children. 

     

    If you find that your students are without their Finding God books and are in need of additional access to online resources, including digital textbooks or online assessments, please reach out to your Educational Consultant or call customer service at 1 (800) 621-1008. 

    Please join us in praying for all those affected by the coronavirus and all those working to contain it. 

    God bless you, 
    Loyola Press
