Here at St. Matthew we have added the Sunday Connection Scripture readings from Loyola Press to our website. At the beginning of every week, the Sunday Scripture (for the upcoming Sunday) is put into everyday English to help children and adults better understand the readings. Each Sunday Connection is categorized to help children, adults, and families connect with one another outside of Mass.
They are grouped as:
- Readings & Background
Summary of both Old & New Testament readings, the Gospel, and background on the Gospel reading.
- School Age Groups: Grades 1-3, 4-6, and 7-8
Short summary of the Gospel and Making the Connection: an activity with list of materials needed and preparation questions to show how children can integrate that Sunday's Gospel into their lives.
Short summary of the Gospel and Family Connection: questions to discuss and a prayer for the whole family to do together.
