This is the Parish Edition, updated to include Roman Missal changes. For the school edition of Finding God, click on the School Programs Preschool-8 tab at the top of this page.
Finding God provides a strong presentation of church doctrine, Scripture and tradition using the Engage, Explore, Reflect and Respond methodology. The program incorporates the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola by empowering teachers and catechists to lead children in prayer, and by providing an abundance of prayer experiences that nurture a lifelong conversation with God. Technology and faith are connected through online activities, planning tools and assessments. Finding God is experiential and multi-sensory. It equips parents and other adults with components that correspond to the structure of the children's program.
Student Books open every unit with the story of a saint and connect the lesson with the living faith of the children. They offer opportunities for reflective prayer, links to liturgy, reading God's Word, and more. Each session includes three opportunities for prayer. Finding God encourages knowledge of the faith through the Prayers and Practices of Our Faith supplement. Each session also includes a Raising Faith-Filled Kids parent page which is also available online in Spanish.
Catechist Guides provide clear, concise preparation for each session and address various learning styles. Guides model different ways of praying. Each Catechist Guide comes with blackline masters, 2 audio CDs, and 5 colorful posters. Other program components include a Director Guide, Pastor Guide, Family Learning Guide, Adult Gathering Sessions Guides. The music CDs and dramatized Scripture stories on CD which are included with the Catechist Guide are also available separately.
