RCL Benziger is here to support you, the administrators, teachers, and catechists, as you continue to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with children and families. During this challenging time, we invite you to take advantage of free 60-day access to our religion curriculum and to explore our many free online resources that will help you prepare easy-to-use lesson plans.

Check back regularly as our resources are continuously being updated.

 

RCL Benziger’s main website, https://www.rclbenziger.com/ offers an overview of our materials and a wide variety of resources.

 

Free Catholic Resources, available at https://www.rclbenziger.com/catholic-resources include prayers and activities for Holy Week and the Easter season, and Sunday celebrations for use in the home during this period when we are unable to gather with our parish communities.

OurFamilyFaith.com features downloadable faith formation models that guide parents, families, and directors of religious education programs in using our resources in the home.

As spring arrives and as the celebration of Earth Day nears, take time to revisit and reflect on Laudato Si’, in which Pope Francis calls us all to take responsibility for the care of our common home. Resources for children and families are available at https://www.rclbenziger.com/catholic-resources and at https://www.rclbenziger.com/laudato-si-on-care-for-our-common-home.

  • Our Family Devotions (prayers and activities from around the globe)
