Pop-Up Catechesis: Singing/Listening to Hymns

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

I have long asserted that if some “Grinch” came along and stole all of our Catholic faith formation textbooks and copies of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and left us with only a hymnal, we would still be able to teach the Catholic faith! Catholic hymns are catechetical; in other words, they teach us about our faith. One great way to teach children about their Catholic faith is to introduce them to Catholic hymns—the topic of today’s episode of Pop-Up Catechesis.
