The tragedy in Haiti has affected us all. We have a list of how to help charitably. To help kids (and others) make sense of the Haitian earthquake, OSV Newsweekly has an article by Dr. Joseph D. White, a licensed psychologist and director of Family Counseling and Family Life Office for the Diocese of Austin, and OSV author. Read "Help kids (and others) make sense of tragedy" here»

Looking for a book for Junior High students that gives a comprehensive review of the Catholic faith? Look no further than Our Sunday Visitor's new Faith Fusion: Knowing, Loving, and Serving Christ in the Catholic Church. Faith Fusion brings the Catholic faith to life in words and images, and provides a complete overview of the faith built on the framework of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. At the heart of every lesson is a focus on Scripture and Tradition, connected to the students' lives through prayer, reflections, activities, and stories of faith lived in the example of saints and other holy people. For more information, visit faithfusion.com
A new feature for Teaching Catholic Kids is "Living Catholic Stewardship for Children." Based on requests from several teachers and catechists looking for ways to link stewardship to their lessons, we will provide an activity that is suited for children.
You might want to check out this new website: www.AmazingCatechists.com --it's "a place for Catholic catechists from all over the world to share teaching tips, insights, experiences, resources and true inspirational stories...."
We hope these new resources will continue OSV's mission of bringing your Catholic faith to life!
Email me at email@example.com to share your suggestions. You can also become a fan at our new page on Facebook!
Let us ask the saints to continue to show us the way to Jesus!
May God bless you!

We Answer God¹s Call
God of all faithfulness,
you have made us in your image and likeness.
You have called us by name
to be your disciples and to serve you.
You bless us with your love
in all the circumstances of our lives.
Send your Holy Spirit upon us
that we may be faithful to
our baptismal promises
and live and work together
for the glory of your name.
We ask this in the name of
Jesus Christ, our Lord.
