Liturgy Books for Children
« on: December 08, 2004, 01:38:38 PM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

I am in the process of putting together a liturgy book for children to use during the Divine Liturgy.  I want to be able to explain what is happening and a little of the why.  Can someone put me in the right direction for books that can help me put this together.  Also, would you recommend photos or line drawings.

Next time I'm in the area I can check out the books that are in the classrooms at Holy Trinity Church in Yonkers.  They seemed to have a lot of childrens books, maybe I can find one about the liturgy and tell you how it's done up.

There is a children's book in Greek called "Avrio einai Kyriaki" (Tomorrow is Sunday) which leads children through the preparation prior to Divine Liturgy like the baking of the prosphora etc. I can't remember if it also continues through the Divine Liturgy or not, I'll have a look tonight.
