Curriculum:

Grades 7 – 10:  Walking in Faith

In grades 7 – 10 we strive to have students walk in their faith by adding increasingly more involved service learning activities and social justice projects to the curriculum, thus encouraging students to further develop their Catholic Faith and establish their identity and role within the church and larger community.  Topics are elevated to the appropriate level of development so that students have a greater understanding of their faith as teens.  Prayer, living as disciples, gratitude, decision making, stewardship, gifts, and how the gospel relates to teens as individuals play large roles in this program.   Please see the Course Requirements for grades 7-10 for further information.

 As Confirmation should not be the end of our spiritual learning, it should have accomplished a personal understanding of the basis of Catholicism from other Christian faiths, an understanding of how to pray, an introduction to scripture, basic familiarity with and how to use the bible, understanding of the Sacraments and the Holy Eucharist, and establish an understanding of an appropriate code of behavior.

The ultimate goal of Catholic religious education is to establish within each student a personal relationship with Christ and belief in the Holy Trinity, a connection with the greater world family of Catholics, a strong moral code of behavior, and motivation toward discipleship.
