While there are many fine catechetical resources for children and teens, many do not adequately address death and dying nor explain the Catholic funeral liturgy and its role in providing grace for the deceased and comfort to the mourning. The following are age-appropriate lesson plans.
This session is meant to reaffirm and encourage the practice of praying for the dead and to teach the special ways that we pray for the dead in the funeral liturgy and at each Mass during the prayers of the faithful.
This is mean to teach students the central aspects of the Catholic burial rite and how it both honors the deceased and offers consolation to the family.
Burying/interring the dead is one of the corporal works of mercy, and is a central part of the faith community
