Catholic features integrated into every station!

NewConnecting Kids to Justice—In partnership with Catholic Relief Services, Harcourt Religion has developed Connecting Kids to Justice, a feature that focuses on raising awareness of Catholic Social Teaching and various social issues. Through the Connecting Kids to Justice stories and information, kids at your VBS will learn what it means to respect the lives of people everywhere.

NewCatholic Music by John Burland—The Sonic Sing & Play CD comes with 5 songs by John Burland. Each song corresponds to a different day at Power Lab and relates to the daily Bible point. The music of John Burland is specifically written for Catholic kids to promote and celebrate the Catholic identity. And the best part is that the Catholic music is already fully integrated into Sonic Sing & Play!
