Families with Children: Staying at Home Gift For You!
Loyola Press has designed a fun interactive online game, “Wanderlight,” for children ages K-6 to help them grow as disciples. We have listened to many of you express your difficulty with continuing Faith Formation for the different ages and abilities in your home, so we hope this unique game will provide a boost during these winter months. Please review the brochure or the website and demo before you sign up. Then, fill out the form to request a copy with a one-year license for each child. The game is designed by grade level, so please order an individual copy for each child based on their academic ability. Contact Pam Fellerhoff with questions.
