Project Nazareth Weekly Toolkits

Each week Project Nazareth provides tools to help families grow together in faith right at home. Every toolkit has a theme drawn from Sacred Scripture which is further elaborated with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

These toolkits explore:
The Good News | the fundamental Gospel message, or the kerygma
Sacred Mysteries | liturgical based off of Sunday’s readings
The Eucharist, Saints, and current issues

The Tools

Learning Objectives

Each week we take a couple theological points and draw three basic concepts from Scripture for the week. They are kept short and simple to help your younger children grasp it. Yet, each concept will builds off of the other. This allows our older children to make connections and see the bigger picture.

Ponder

Our faith has many mysteries. Pondering them builds up our faith. The toolkits offer questions and conversation starters for families to ponder the learning objectives of the week. You might incorporate these conversations into daily life routines, such as driving to and from school or while together at the dinner table.

Listen

Scripture is an amazing gift God has given us to listen to His Word. Each week Project Nazareth will provide Scripture passages that inspired the week’s learning objectives for the family to listen and reflect on the words of God. Listening to God in prayer is at the heart of Project Nazareth.

Pray

Here we offer prayer suggestions for the week to expand and deepen your family’s prayer life. The kinds of prayer will vary from week to week. For example, one week may offer a recited prayer or song and another week may have times of silence or a decade of the rosary. The Pray section will help children begin a prayer life of their own and help the family develop their own spirituality.

Act

Children often learn by doing. Project Nazareth offers weekly activities to help solidify children’s understanding of the week’s learning objectives. You may choose to do all of the activities or select one to focus on in a given week. From games to works of mercy, the weekly toolkit mixes up the activities each week to fit the needs and preferences of everyone in your family.

Going Deeper

As you prepare for the week, you might find a point in the resources that strikes you and you want to know more. Or maybe your child asks a question that you are not sure how to answer. Going Deeper is to feed your curiosity and that of your child. This section is a few extra resources from Church documents, articles, and videos for these such occasions.

Faith begins at home.
