Coronavirus Resources for Children, Young People and Their Families

Online worship gives families an opportunity to celebrate their faith in a way that is familiar at a time when we are being asked to do things so differently.

Join CAFOD’s Children’s Liturgy Live! on Sunday morning at 10.00. Register for this week’s liturgy and CAFOD will email you a link.



Receive CAFOD liturgy resources by email.

A children’s liturgy is posted every week on Colour and Shape Online.

Our Diocese of Arundel and Brighton is producing materials with background information, Scripture readings, prayers, reflections and suggested activities to help families mark and celebrate the liturgical year in their homes. These resources will be made available as the year unfolds. Please feel welcome to share your ideas with us.

20-minute Children’s Liturgy videos include readings from Scripture, liturgical music, movement, and visuals to help bring the Word of God to life for children.

Celebrate: following your faith is an initiative of Redemptorist Publications designed to help children grow in their faith. Each week a video of the week’s Gospel reading, a reflection and a final prayer is provided. Fun, engaging and practical worksheets/resources will also be provided to help children continue to practise their faith.

St Mary’s Press has online readings, reflections and questions, suitable for young people and children, updated daily.
