The Celebrating the Saints curriculum is a year-long study of the lives of the saints. Celebrating the Saints: Downloadable Course equips facilitators and youth and adult participants to follow Jesus while learning more about twenty-six of the monks, missionaries, prophets, doctors, evangelists and more who are named saints in The Episcopal Church's calendar. Celebrating the Saints: Downloadable Course is designed for use in weekly youth and adult formation times and lessons are easily adaptable. Each hour-long class stands on its own and can be used independently or rearranged in any order. The curriculum provides course overviews, step-by-step instructions, discussion questions, activity suggestions, and handouts for the participants. If you are using the guide on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, the hyperlinks are enabled.
Celebrating the Saints also offers corresponding lessons for children. This all-ages format allows families to learn about the same topic, each in their own class, and have a shared starting point from which to talk, discuss, and learn together when you return home.
Celebrating the Saints is part of the Living Discipleship series of offerings, funded by a generous grant from The Episcopal Church's Constable Fund. With this financial support, we are able to offer the curriculum free of charge as a download to any Episcopal church. In addition, Forward Movement is joining with The Constable Fund to offer ten free copies of the printed Meet the Saints: Family Storybook to congregations with an average Sunday attendance of 50 or less. Please contact us at 800.543.1813 to place the order. Shipping is additional.
The Celebrating the Saints curriculum can be used as a standalone study, or in conjunction with other Living Discipleship year-long studies including Practicing our Faith and Exploring the Bible.
