Lesson Notes: The Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit

The third Person of the Trinity is the Holy Spirit and every time we get some little glimpse of Jesus, whether it’s a host turning into the Real Body of Jesus at Mass or an interaction that prompts you to mention Jesus to someone, the Holy Spirit is at work.  The concept is a little harder to grasp because we don’t see Him, but we can see the results of His work and  Scripture and Tradition offer lots of symbols that help us bring the picture more clearly into focus.  Fire, water, oil,  a dove … the list goes on and all are ways to help us build our relationship with the third person of the Holy Trinity.

There are two activities with this lesson:

  • The first one is the Pauline Family Holy Spirit Songbook which takes simple melodies you’re sure to know and “baptizes” them for the holy purpose of teaching you all some of the truths of the Faith!  If you have younger students, make this part of the lesson your priority! You’ll learn a little catechism of the Holy Spirit in very simple, memorable songs.
  • origami doveThe second activity is a visual reminder of the effects of the Holy Spirit using origami doves.  There are multiple directions for your family’s focus (Baptism, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, or the Fruits of the Holy Spirit), so think a bit about which you’d like to highlight ahead of time.  You may also find it helpful to test out the origami project so you’re familiar with it before trying to help your kids make their own.
