Welcome to Little Prophets! We would like to share with you some great tools for helping our younger Catholics take a closer look at the Sunday readings. We will share videos and activities that were created to help get them more engaged and excited about their faith!
You can click on the images below to watch video reflections on the weekly readings and to download a weekly kids’ bulletin. Please note that Miss Heidi posts her weekly videos on Friday or Saturday, so be sure to watch her YouTube site for her update. Please visit the Children’s page at Sundayprep.org for many more videos, activities, sermons and more for children of all ages.
This week’s gospel reading:
In today’s Gospel Jesus attends a wedding celebration with his mother and his friends. During the celebration Jesus’ mother notices that there is no more wine. Knowing that this could be embarrassing for the bride and groom, she brings the situation to her son’s attention. Jesus listens to his mother. Even though he tells her that his time has not yet come, Jesus tells the servers to fill the jars with water. The water is then changed into wine and the celebration goes on. This Gospel describes one of Jesus’ first signs that he is the Messiah. As a result of this miracle at the wedding in Cana, the disciples believe in Jesus.
Let us pray:
Loving God, thank you for giving us signs of your love.
Help us to recognize and celebrate your presence with us.
In the name of Jesus we pray.

In response to the pandemic, Heidi and Mark Witte have been producing free 25 minute Children’s Liturgy videos every week since March. The interactiveness of their program encourages children to participate, appeals to various learning styles, and helps young children understand Scripture and their faith more fully! You can access this free catechetical resource by visiting their YouTube Channel here.
Catholic Kids Media is an effort to evangelize the culture, providing quality Catholic programming for kids that does not water down Catholicism. They develop resources for parents and teachers to instruct children in the Faith and practices of prayer. You can visit their YouTube Channel here.
The Kids’ Bulletins are a resource for Catholic kids who would like to have some fun while learning about the readings from the Sunday Mass every week. (Ordinary Form) They are made by a mom in Canada who is happy to share them with anyone who can use them to help learn or teach about the truth and beauty of the Faith. You can visit her website here.
