For any religion teachers out there, or those who know religion teachers, I've just added a list of creative activities about the saints on my blog (www.kathleenglavich) under "Articles" for "Saintly Assignments." This will help with the celebration of the Feast of All Saints, November 1.
Another good resource for the upper grades...they love guided meditation...a chance to God speak to them. This guided meditation communicates the Gospel message of simple living in a way that engages the imagination and inspires young people to actively simplify their lives: http://bit.ly/1nrc9ga Image via our resource center: http://bit.ly/1CsnGO0

Respect Life Month is an excellent time to particularly reflect on life issues and to pray for and promote greater respect for all human life. New resources, produced by the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, are available to assist parishes in the presentations of life issues. Program packets include a folder with this year’s theme on the cover; a set of three horizontally-oriented, letter-size “mini posters”, a catalog of Respect Life resources; a bilingual flyer exploring the theme; and six new articles on varying topics, such as adoption, miscarriage, and healing within marriage from an abortion. Printable versions of these materials, the 2014 statement for Respect Life Month, liturgical resources, and ordering information are available at www.usccb.org/respectlife
