The best way to learn any Catholic prayer is to practice praying it out loud repeatedly. In addition to the practice, though, it is helpful for young people to slow down and see exactly what words they say when they pray.
The following fill in the blank printable worksheets will help young people learn the prayers and reflect on the meaning of the words they pray. By writing out the words of each prayer, kids get a chance to wonder about the words they pray and why they pray them.
You can copy and paste the text of each prayer into a word document and create your own fill in the blank handouts, or click the button below to download printables for all of these Catholic prayers.Download all these Catholic Fill in the Blank Worksheets >
