  • Additional practical resources for use with groups of children and adults, at home and in outreach activities.

This third and final volume in the series is divided into three sections:

  • Celebrating God’s Providence: includes material for the agricultural year, including Harvest Festival, Rogationtide and creative ways of exploring creation throughout the year.
  • Remembrance: material for All Souls, All Saints and Remembrance Sunday.
  • Following God’s call: material for feasts and festivals, including the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), The Conversion of Paul, The Birth of John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, the Transfiguration and St Michael and All Angels.

A free CD-ROM with downloadable services, diagrams and photographs is also included.
