Let Us Attend: Sunday's Gospel for Children


Illustrated handouts of the each Sunday's Gospel for every Sunday are offered at five levels with discussion questions. It is paraphrased for the younger grades, and presented as it will be heard for the older students. Engaging graphics and great questions--it can be used as the curriculum for a small church school, or by parents who wish to read the gospel on Saturday night with their children. Additionally, a Reader's Theater page is now available for each Gospel. Those who have used Let Us Attend materials report that the children are much more attentive to the Gospel Reading at the Divine Liturgy. Two audio files are available each Sunday--one for the younger children, told by a master storyteller, and one for the older children, a reading of the Gospel.

Gospel Program Archives

*The Gospel for each Sunday is according to the Antiochian Orthodox schedule. We use http://www.antiochian.org... as our source, except when this information is not yet posted in time for publication deadlines. In those situations, we use http://www.antiochianladi..., which is often available farther in advance. We realize that different dioceses and jurisdictions follow different schedules. If you are looking for a Gospel that doesn't match our current offerings, please visit our Gospel Program archives which lists the Sunday, and the scriptural reference for each Gospel we have prepared since October of 2004.
