This week we are focusing on the martyrs, especially in the days of the Romans. 

Home Activities:

  • Many of your children will have the saint’s name of a martyr and you can review the life and death of these saints. 
  • Any book on the lives of the saints will have multiple choices for bedtime stories; focus on the courage of the saint and not so much on the gory details. 
  • Watch “The Robe” together as a family, complete with popcorn. 
  • For older children, remind them that Christians are still being persecuted around the world; point out some of the countries on the world map or globe. 

Prayer: Lord, give me the trust and courage that you gave the martyrs.


Do you know the song to the martyrs sung at each wedding?


Rearrange the tiles to see the prayer.
