 Our Description

This dynamite new faith formation program introduces Catholic young adolescents to Jesus Christ in a new way and inspires them to follow him. Fostering the faith of young adolescents involves helping them to make connections between the Catholic faith and everyday life. It also means helping young people to strengthen their connection to the faith community. Catholic Connections aims to strengthen the participants' Catholic identity and inspire them to participate more fully in the Church's mission. In a world of laws of nations and laws of the heart, help them recognize that it is the power of the Holy Spirit that has united God's people in love and that continues to be a transforming presence. Using an active, hands-on approach to Catholic religious education, Catholic Connections is a comprehensive parish religious education program for 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

Whether middle schoolers encounter this book as part of the Catholic Connections program in faith formation or pick it up out of curiosity, The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers offers great guidance and aims to help young teens learn about all the central aspects of the Catholic faith, including God, revelation, faith, Jesus the Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church, liturgy and sacraments, Christian morality and justice, and prayer.

The book contains many special features and sidebars, including

  • Live It!: suggestions for putting faith into action
  • Pray It!: short, inspiring prayers
  • Did You Know?: additional information about selected topics
  • Fun Facts: brief notes designed to inform and amuse
  • Illustrations: 22 4-color illustrations of people of faith
  • People of Faith: profiles of inspiring, faith-filled people
  • Think About It!: questions to ponder or discuss with friends and family
  • Liturgy Connections: articles that show the relationship between Catholic beliefs and worship
  • Looking Back: insights from history


  • A collection of prayers
  • A glossary of key words
  • A handy, brief summary of Catholic beliefs and practices

The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers is a great tool for study, but it is more than that. It offers excellent guidance for praying and living the Catholic faith.
