Help your parish children, teens, and adults put their faith into action with these simple, engaging, and creative activities for mixed-age groups. Perfect for intergenerational gatherings and family formation.
Crossing the Ages: Intergenerational Activities for Forming Faith is a collection of activities you can use to enhance your formation sessions and gatherings. Use them to extend a learning session or to draw out a particular teaching or theme in a simple hands-on activity. Each activity corresponds to a specific Sunday of the liturgical year, but you can also use them any time of the year to focus on a specific theme highlighted in the suggested Scripture reading. Each activity includes a specific theme and focus, clear directions for the leader, and a fun activity that helps bring the message of faith to life for your intergenerational groups. Learning has never been more fun!
