This resource encourages children to draw near to Jesus through love and devotion to His Mother, Mary. This course is not intended to replace your child’s catechism lessons but to develop and enrich them.

Each lesson covers one of the 20 Mysteries of the Rosary with: 

  • Thought-provoking, inspirational stories
  • Hands-on activities and instructions
  • Age-appropriate meditations and discussion-starters
  • Inspiring, full-color illustrations—by Catholic artist Anna May McCallum—that present the life of Christ and His Mother through the eyes of a child 

At the end of the course your child will have his own book of Rosary meditations and illustrations!  

The Book contains short stories and lesson-by-lesson directions for completing the hands-on projects. 

The Packet consists of templates, artwork, and illustrated materials needed to complete the projects described in the Book.

A family or group using At the Feet of Mary will only need to purchase one Book, while each student will need his own Packet. Lessons are designed to be completed at a rate of one per week for 21 weeks, but they can be accelerated to several lessons per week if need be.

Recommended for ages 7-10.

A daily schedule for this core text is available in CHC Lesson Plans for Third Grade.

We are absolutely loving our At the Feet of Mary packets. Thank you so much for this amazing curriculum!

My daughter was so excited to start her hands-on religious education. We decided to make a lapbook out of the Packet for At the Feet of Mary.
My children's behavior has changed considerably since we've used CHC materials. Instead of obeying their parents for fear of being reprimanded, they do it for the love of God and our Blessed Mother. They become so proud that they ask if God is smiling, and want to make sure that their behavior will help them get into Heaven. They are also more open to sharing God's love with their friends, who may be having a difficult time themselves.
