Catechists in Action – Steve Lascola Teaches About the Lord’s Prayer

In this segment of Catechists in Action, 3rd grade catechist Steve Lascola teaches about the Lord’s Prayer and forgiveness as he prepares the children for the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. Watch for the following:

  • Steve reads some thoughts about the Our Father from a book about Our Lady of Medjugorje. (Steve agreed with me afterwards that this was above the kids’ heads and that things we personally find edifying may not always connect with those we teach)
  • Steve explains what the word AMEN means.
  • Steve speaks from the heart about the experience of forgiveness (he is at his best when he speaks from the heart like this)
  • Steve directs the kids to complete an activity sheet about how we forgive others.
