Come and See


In Come and See we have been learning about preparing for Christmas. This week’s lesson we will be leaning Jesus comes to us as God’s loving gift.

Remember Isaiah telling the people about God’s promise. God was true to the promise he had made. Jesus was born at Bethlehem, God gave us his only Son because he loved us and wanted us to know more about his love and to follow Jesus’ example.


God gave us Jesus as a loving gift to bring light into our lives. Catholics gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Mass on Christmas eve during the night and on Christmas day. It is a very special time to remember, God gave us Jesus because he loves us;


Here is a prayer to share:

Dear Jesus,

When we come to the crib on Christmas morning, may we love you as Mary loved you,

Serve you as Joseph served you,

And come to you as the shepherds and wise men came to you.



Talk about what the words might mean.

  • Design and make a lantern to remind us that Jesus is like a light. Decorate it with a Nativity scene.




  • Design and make a stained-glass window depicting the gift God gave us at Christmas, Jesus’ birth.
