6th Grade Religion
The sixth grade Religion class will be a study of the Old Testament and its meaning for Catholics. Study of the Old Testament guides your child to see in Jesus the fulfillment of all the Father has promised, as well as the perfect response to his love.
7th Grade Religion
The seventh grade Religion class will study the life of Jesus and His relationship to the Church and its members. The focus on Jesus will lead students to discover that Jesus is ultimately the answer to many, if not all, of their important questions.
8th Grade Religion
The eighth grade Religion class will make an in-depth study of the Ten Commandments during the first part of the course. The emphasis will include the historical background of the commandments and the theological application of those laws in today's world with regard to the official teaching of the Catholic Church. This class will also focus on the early development of this apostolic Church and its growth into the modern Church.
Reading and studying the Bible will take up a significant portion of all of these classes. There will be a weekly study and discussion of the Sunday Liturgical Readings. We have a supply of classroom Bibles, but it is suggested that you have a copy of The New American Bible at home as well.
