Complete Overview of Catholic Church History for Children

video series with printable timeline and summaries!

Catholic Church history is a vast and complex subject, but some events stand out as more significant than others. These seismic events mark the beginning and end of different eras in Church history.

This series of 162 videos, with printable summaries and questions, explores these seismic events and the eras they created. The videos divide Church history into seven major eras, from the Gospels to 1945, and provide a global and historical context with engaging stories and vivid imagery.

To make learning more fun and interactive, we have included a 7-page expanded timeline (included in the supplemental package).  You can cut and paste the important people and events, and color the different time periods. This will help you remember the main movements of Church history and how they connect to the smaller events. You will also see the patterns and links between different eras more clearly. 

This overview provides a comprehensive and solid foundation for learning Church history. It will make the smaller events easier to understand and appreciate in their context, rather than zooming in on a single event without seeing the whole picture.
