Welcome to our playlists! Each list is geared with activities, games and more for different ages of kids.

 

Feel free to have older siblings help younger siblings - we learn from teaching and doing together too. :D

 

Feel free to work through the playlist at your own pace, you do not need to complete it all at once.

 

Take a picture or two along the way and e-mail them to Nicky at nuerling@stmichaelcanfield.org or send them to me on our Remind app. It will be a great way for us to stay connected!

Read

Each week at Mass, after we hear the Homily, we stand together and pray the words of the Apostles' Creed. 

These words tell us what we believe to be true about our faith and our God. 

Start this session out by reading the words of the Apostles' Creed.

Watch

You just read the Apostle's Creed - but what does it mean? 

Check out this video to learn more about the words we say at Mass each week.

Do

Make your own Creed booklet! 

Find the booklet included in your kit. The words of the Apostle's Creed are there - but you need to add pictures! 

As you add pictures think about what each of these statements mean. We profess these beliefs each time we pray the Creed together.

Pray

Find the orange colored strips in your kit for this month and cut them apart.

This month, our prayer is more active! Spend some time putting your Apostles' Creed strips in order. Meditate on the words and their meanings as you put them together. 

Grades 6-8:

Read

Each weekend at Mass, we stand together and profess our faith, or what we believe, in our Creed. 

At St. Michael's we pray the Apostles' Creed. Did you know that there is another creed too, the Nicene Creed? Take a moment to read it here. 

Then watch the video that talks more about what it means. 

Watch

You just read the Nicene Creed, but what does it mean and where did it come from? 

Check out this video below to learn more about the Nicene Creed, its history and its meaning. 

Do

Find the file folder game in your kit, and the die. You will need to find items to serve as game tokens from around your house.

This game will test your knowledge on the Nicene Creed. 

Be sure to watch the video first as it will help with some of the questions! 

Pray

Each week as we say the words of the Creed, we are professing what we believe. 

Place the copy of the Nicene Creed from your kit this month someplace you will see it often. 

Each time you pass, think about one of the deep truths that you are professing to believe each week at Mass. 

Adults

Read

When is the last time you really thought about what elements are key to our faith? 

Take a moment and read the words of the Apostles' Creed or the Nicene Creed with your children. 

Each time we proclaim the Creed we are saying,

"I believe..."

Watch

Sunday after Sunday, Catholics around the world rise and recite a series of paragraphs in a shared profession of faith. But why? Bishop Don Hying has more info right here.

Thanks to C4: Ignite Your Catholic Faith for this great video! 

Do

The next time you celebrate Mass (either in person or via live stream) take special note of the words we proclaim and profess during our Creed. 

Call them to mind over the course of this month. 

Pray

Listen to this musical version of the Apostles' Creed by Rich Mullins. 

Let the words of what we believe stay with you in a special way this month.
