Hi God: More than 50 years of music for catechesis and liturgies with children and young people

Hi God: More than 45 years of music for catechesis and liturgies with children and young people


Since 1973, Hi God has been helping generations of youngsters discover God's loving presence and kindness through song, gesture and prayer. This message remains the same today.

A timeless resource for all catechetical and liturgical leaders, the Hi God series allows children to experience the wonder of our Lord through love and devotion. Each song is appropriate for liturgies with children, and the music is rarely limited by age. Additionally, there are many songs for special seasons and feasts within the liturgical year.

The Gesture Books are also a terrific resource for children of all ages. Not only can they engage their faith through song, but they can do so through action as well. These interactive collections have excited teachers, parents, students and children for decades. Through God's grace, each has grown in the appreciation and understanding of his/her faith. Now 50 years later, the same is still true for the youth of today.
