A SAINT EVERY WEEK . . . A VIRTUE EVERY MONTH! In a culture where young people are encouraged to emulate movie stars, sports figures, or fantasy super heroes, where can they find examples of Virtue to inspire them or teach them truths of the Faith? Heroes of Grace can furnish young minds with concrete examples of heroic virtue, faithfulness to the Gospel, Christian charity, and loving self-sacrifice! The Saints are a compelling witness to the Universal Call to Holiness!

Recent studies have shown that a knowledge of the Saints has a positive impact on a child's faith retention into adulthood! Supplement your Religious Education Curriculum in CCD Programs, Catholic Schools, or Homeschool Settings with SAINTS, VIRTUES, and the TREASURES of the Liturgical Calendar! Designed by a Director of Religious Education with over twenty years' experience writing curricula for children, and who has worked with large groups (2,000 students a year) and all age groups, Heroes of Grace is effective, inexpensive, and easy to administer.

Program Inserts are designed to correspond to the current Church calendar, featuring a Saint whose feast day occurs during that week (September to May), with an additional Insert each month on a Virtue. Liturgical feasts and devotions are also featured to coincide with the current Church year. With a wealth of beautiful pictures, sidebars, or coloring pages that work as teaching instruments, each Insert becomes an extremely effective, flexible, and easy-to-use teaching tool. One Insert provides two Treatments of the same subject: Primary Treatment for Grades 1-4, with large-type, easy-to-read stories and carefully selected illustrations or coloring pages that teach early readers the important concepts, and In-Depth Treatment for Grades 5+, Catechists, Parents, Confirmation or RCIA Candidates, and Adult Education, with detailed information, additional pictures, and sidebars.

For CCD Programs, Catholic Schools, and Parishes, Heroes of Grace is delivered as a packet of full-color, professionally printed Inserts, ready for reproduction in either color or black-and-white, for your program needs. Heroes of Grace has already proven effective for religious education programs of all sizes and objectives; Inserts can be used in class, sent home as a family activity, or manually inserted into bulletins. The Program is also available as a CD of pdfs for easy emailing to groups, such as teachers or parents. Purchase of the Packet or CD entitles the parish to reproduce as many copies as needed for their specific programs. Presented in Virginia, Maryland, Nebraska, Texas, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Minnesota, South Carolina, Washington DC, Ohio, Oklahoma, California, and Alaska, Heroes of Grace has already given thousands of children a deeper appreciation of the Saints, Virtues, and beauties of their Catholic heritage.

For Homeschool or individual use, Heroes of Grace is sold each year as a spiral-bound book and is protected by copyright; reproduction is not permitted without specific written permission from Coronae Rosarum Publications.

COMMENTS FROM SATISFIED CUSTOMERS: Michele Leary, DRE at Holy Trinity Parish in Gainesville, has used HEROES OF GRACE since its inception. She writes: "HEROES OF GRACE is a huge blessing to Holy Trinity Parish! I use the program in CCD classes, and I post the handouts on the CCD bulletin board, where there is ALWAYS someone reading the beautiful explanations of the virtues and saints during class times! Catholic schools would enrich their religion programs by using HEROES OF GRACE as a weekly supplement! Everybody loves them! Thanks, Carol Anne Jones--your materials are superb!"

Mary Therrell, Principal of St. Ann Catholic School in Arlington, VA, writes: "HEROES OF GRACE has enhanced our religion program through its beautifully written stories of the Saints and through the stunning artwork that brings those stories to life. Students are challenged to strengthen and develop Virtue by imitating these heroes of the Church."

Jim Kontoes, a middle school religion teacher at St. Ann School who uses HEROES OF GRACE in his classes, has this to say: "I really love your program. Your stories of the saints are some of the best I have ever come across in ten years of teaching! They are very well written, short enough to easily weave into the curriculum but amazingly in depth. Best of all, my students are able to tell me about every one of the saints I introduce them to in equally fine detail!"

Delores Nelson, former Director of Religious Education for Saint Andrew the Apostle Church in Clifton, VA, says: "HEROES OF GRACE was a great resource for my catechists. Each month I emailed them the readily available information about Saints, Virtues, feast days, and special Catholic observances which they then incorporated into their classroom lesson. I also emailed them to all parents for extra enhancement at home. Our homeschool parents were quite pleased to supplement their home programs with HEROES OF GRACE. This program is a great enhancement for any school of religious education."

Comments from others include the following: "I love your stuff!" and "We have really been enjoying HEROES OF GRACE. Several teachers are using them in their lessons and others are just talking about the saint briefly and sending it home. I have heard a lot of positive feedback from the parents as well. It is a beautiful program--we are blessed to have found it."
