The LTP Virtual Workshop Series

Forming Children as Classroom Prayer Leaders

                       Presented by Lisa Orchen

Participants in this workshop (catechists and teachers) will learn the key elements to gathered classroom prayer. In order to foster fully active participation, teachers and catechists will learn techniques that will inspire and empower children of all ages to assist in the preparation and leading of daily/weekly prayer services. Inspired by the liturgical season with the use of art, environment, and music, your classroom will be transformed into a prayer space where the hearts of your students meet the heart of God. An emphasis is placed on collaborating with others in your parish and school community.
