About this workshop
Preaching in settings with children can be one of the most difficult challenges preachers face. Whether you are a priest, teacher, chaplain, or Sunday School leader, this workshop will offer practical help in crafting homilies specifically for children. Drawing on insights gleaned over the past 70 years within the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd movement, Dr. Ann Garrido will introduce key characteristics of childhood and children’s spirituality and present ways to reflect on Scripture through the lens of the young child. Preachers will discover possibilities for preaching with children, rather than preaching to them. Workshop includes lunch and a copy of Ann’s book Preaching with Children (LTP, 2022).
This workshop is being made possible through the generous funding of the Lilly Endowment’s Christian Parenting and Caregiving Initiative.
