Save the date for an upcoming webinar on Zoom: MUSIC FOR ENRICHING CATECHESIS WITH CHILDREN AND FAMILIES on Jan 21, 2021 at 2:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada). In this workshop renowned family educator John Burland (Composer) and Heidi Witte (Kids Liturgy) will share a variety of songs and strategies that help children learn the core beliefs of our faith. These catechetical songs cover a variety of themes including Scripture, doctrine and sacraments. This workshop will also demonstrate how the addition of prayerful gesture/signing can further enhance the teaching and learning process. Come join John and Heidi us as we celebrate the gift of our faith through song.
If you like the religious songs we sing during Children’s Liturgy, visit to purchase CDs by Catholic composer John Burland, or go to for MP3 downloads.
Continuing to produce our program has become increasingly challenging for us. Since March, my husband Mark and I have been producing and sharing our free 25 minute Children’s Liturgy videos in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Please support us by becoming a patron at .
Thank you for sharing your children with us this weekend! May God bless you and your families in this New Year, and may He keep you safe and well. See you next Sunday!
