Bible Verses for Recitation (enrichment)

You may want to enrich your child’s growing faith and intellect by memorizing Bible verses together!

Here are some selections of Bible verses (from the New American Bible, Revised Edition, as recommended by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) for memorization, penmanship practice, or study.

Artwork, video recordings of recitations, and penmanship samples can be submitted to me through my school email for consideration to display or share with the rest of the class!
