Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Program


To Improve Catholic Religious Education for Children and Adults with Intellectual Disabilities. A comprehensive religion curriculum designed to help parents and catechists in their task of teaching special needs children and adults about the Catholic faith. The program may be used in a variety of religious education settings: parish religious education, either in an inclusive classroom or in a specialized setting. It may also be used in the home for family catechesis.

The curriculum covers the major aspects of the Catholic faith such as knowledge of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Students learn about the sacraments of the church, the life of Christ, the Blessed Mother, the commandments, the saints, and living the Christian life. They will be taught the prayers that are familiar to all Catholics. Lessons are written developmentally so that concepts are built one upon the other. The program consists of 220 lesson plans for students with mild or moderate intellectual disabilities from ages 5-18. Also includes basic catechesis, lesson plans on the liturgical year, prayer services and more. 

This program pack includes 1) four lesson plan books (foundational, relational, discipleship, and mission), 2) an appendix booklet with references to Scripture and the Catechism, scope and sequence, and a list of resources, 3) a booklet for parents, and a catechist formation booklet. All components are pictured as additional images above.

Although the program no longer comes in a 3-ring binder, these paperback books contain the same content. Four supplemental reproducible activity books, one for each level, complete the program.   (©1999)
