Whispers in the Pew Parent Booklet
Whispers in the Pew is a magazine-style booklet for parents of young children.
Archbishop Listecki writes, “Whispers in the Pew reminds me of the very best way children learn about liturgy: directly from their parents, grandparents or caregivers during Mass. When children return to church every week, questions naturally arise: 'What’s that for?' 'Why does the priest do that?' 'Why are we standing up again?' Sitting close enough in the pews to whisper responses, adults lovingly pass on the faith to the children Jesus treasures."
Whispers in the Pew is available to parishes, at no cost, to distribute to parents of young children, whether in church, in a sacramental program, in a parent group, or individually.
