Pop-Up Catechesis: Crafting Faith

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Did you realize that the Bible begins with a craft activity? The Creation stories of Genesis chapters one and two tell us that, out of the Divine imagination, God crafted the heavens and the earth, animals and plant life, night and day, oceans and sky, and human beings. That’s quite a craft activity! For this reason, crafts have always played a part in faith formation and deservedly so: when we craft something, we are imitating God. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we take a look at crafts that can be done in the home to form children in faith.
