Grades 7 & 8 Religion

 

April 2019 

7th Grade has started to examine and understand Jesus' use of Parables as a method of teaching. We will learn the different types of parables, how to seek out the symbolism and how to understand the lessons taught therein. Additionally, we will observe Lent by discussing Mercy, forgiveness and reconciliation. After our Easter observance we will discuss Resurrected Jesus and His interactions with His disciples and His desire for all of us to continue to spread the Good News.

8th Grade will learn about the Crusades and the affect they had on the Church, including the contribution of the Fourth Crusade to the separation of the Eastern and Western Church. We will then discuss the ensuing councils and the doctrines developed during those councils. 

Both classes will continue to be quizzed/tested on the material covered, but please be assured all tests and quizzes are based on their notes. Encourage your student to review their notes often.

Always feel free to contact me with any questions!

 "So I say to you, Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.
- Jesus of Nazareth

 

“If we are worth anything, it is not because we have more money or more talent, or more human qualities. Insofar as we are worth anything, it is because we are grafted onto Christ’s life, his cross and resurrection. That is a person’s measure.”

― St. Oscar Romero

The Six tasks of catechesis as six key elements of Catholic life so as to help young disciples in formation to realize the intimate connection between our Catholic faith and life. These six key elements of Catholic life “constitute a unified whole by which catechesis seeks to achieve its objective: the formation of disciples of Jesus Christ.” These six key elements are:

Key Element I: Knowledge of Faith
Key Element II: Sacraments and Liturgy

Key Element III: Morality: How We Live
Key Element IV: Prayer: How We Pray
Key Element V: Education for Living in the Christian Community
Key Element VI: Evangelization and Apostolic Life
