increasing Eucharistic devotion at a young age
"JESUS SAID, 'LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME, AND DO NOT HINDER THEM, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE.'" (MATTHEW 19:14)
Does your parish have Eucharistic Adoration regularly? Do you seek to create or continue a vibrant youth program in your parish? Children's Adoration will do just that, because Jesus will do just that! Leading children in the worship of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament at such a young age will plant priceless seeds in their souls. All you need is a person or rotation of people to use the lesson plans to teach children how to adore Jesus in the Eucharist, simple materials like paper and crayons, and the optional choice of candy. This program is constantly developing and becoming stronger each and every week, as it is not just stale lesson plans that should be tried. No, they are plans that are being created and actively used by Madeline McKechnie in her parish. Through the Lord's grace, it has been successful, and it needs to be spread to other parishes. This starts with you. Take action, and prayerfully consider beginning this Children's Adoration program at your parish so that the Church can flourish and so that more and more genuine praise and devotion can be given to God.
Materials: paper, crayons, and maybe a little candy
geared towards elementary students

Madeline McKechnie is a passionate Catholic who has developed a strong devotion to the Eucharist especially through Eucharistic Adoration. When not at church, she enjoys boating, running for her school's track and cross country team, and worshiping the Lord in every other way.
