With the feast of the Nativity of the Lord fast approaching, Orthodox Journeys offers a new set of educational materials to engage families in your parish.
Lessons from Orthodox Journeys have inspired high school students to organize clothing drives in their parish, generated conversations between teens and parents about the Liturgy, and helped nurture young people to grow in their understanding of the Orthodox Faith!
Student Handout: 7 pages of content and activities for young people, exploring the festal Scriptural readings, liturgical hymns, iconography, and more.
Study Guides: 3-5 pages of instruction and discussion topics for teachers or home-schooling families teaching about the feast by grade level (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12).
Parents Overview Guide: a one-page summary supporting parents’ efforts, engaging their children through starter questions and topics.
Like their weekly Church school lessons, this Nativity lesson is licensed at an affordable price making it possible for you to educate every family in your parish community!
Create a 3D diorama of the Nativity icon!
This activity (pictured above) comes in pdf format, with full color icon pieces ready to trim and assemble in a 3D format, creating a unique way to teach about our Lord's birth using the festal icon. Learn more

One satisfied customer said of Orthodox Journeys’ materials:
“I purchased the curriculum for the whole year and I absolutely LOVE this!!! Our Sunday school is currently in-person learning, however with a surge in Covid cases in our area—few children are attending in-person. The PDFs make it possible to transition online. Thank you!
“I highly recommend all Sunday school educators use this resource as it is FULL of wonderful information and more importantly helps us explain to our children how the Gospel pertains to their lives today.”
