in all three Lectionary cycles, especially during the seasons of Advent-Christmas and Lent-Easter.
Keeping Lent
Good News children are at a great age for participating in Lenten practices. They enjoy taking on a simple task and completing it,
either by themselves
or with others. At the end of this Lent, the children will have a calendar with  ve Lenten words on it— Pray, Give, Fast, Love, Grow—and a visual record of how they put those words into action in their own lives.
If you are using the Gospel Weeklies to help prepare children for initiation into the
Church at Easter (including Baptism), your parish will likely
use the Cycle A readings for the Scrutinies on the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Sundays of Lent. P aum provides these three Cycle
A lessons for Promise, Good News, Venture, and Visions online to be substituted as needed for Cycle B and C lessons. Visit for these Cycle A lessons and Teaching Guides.
