JCLUB- A CATHOLIC PLACE FOR KIDS

A fairly new (or just updated) site, I think with a few “coming soon” features which all look very promising. There’s a saint a day section which doesn’t include my school’s patroness, unfortunately… but does feature many others. Prayers, jokes, books, games and puzzles, all with a Catholic spin.

Flash Movies  These movies should be previewed but many are appropriate for use in a Catholic setting.  I especially like the one called “Who are you?”

 

 

 

WORSHIP HOUSE MEDIA

   This is not a free resource but I just had to include it.  Here you can find mini movies, skits, stills, motions for backgrounds…I like their scripture re-enactments in place of someone reading for a little change in my powerpoint guided prayer services.  The prices are quite reasonable too! As low as $3.

EDUCATION FOR JUSTICE

Rich resource for the justice-minded.  Prayer services, movie reviews through a CST lens, prayers, service ideas, and much more!  The membership is $58 per year, less than I spend on coffee in a month.  There are some free resources but it is well worth the price of a nice dinner for two for a year’s access to this really worthwhile and useful site.  Resources are downloadable, so you can get quite a lot of material in just one year! Highly recommended.
