Bookmark and Share
  • Catholic School leaders and teachers will love this book. It has everything absolutely everything they want and need to know about prayer in the school. Sr. Kathleen is a veteran teacher and it s clear that she has been there and done that with great joy and enthusiasm. But she knows that not every teacher feels secure about praying with a class, even though they know it s important and realize that parents entrust them with this responsibility. And she also realizes that certain Catholic prayer forms are a mystery to them. On the other hand, there are those who feel very comfortable teaching prayer but are looking for fresh ideas. Prayer First meet both these needs. It serves as a textbook for a Prayer 101 course by explaining prayer and various prayer forms. It is also a resource book that shares methods and activities for teaching prayer that have worked well for others. Among many other topics, Sr. Kathleen discusses traditional prayer, scripture-based prayer, meditation, centering prayer, mantras, and liturgical prayer. Her two appendices are a real plus, offering 1) definitions for Catholic prayer words and rituals and 2) practical, hands-on prayer samples for teachers. This is an invaluable Catholic School resource for principals, board members, teachers, and parents!
