Grades 7 & 8 Religion

January 2021 

As we celebrated Christmas our students learned about the coming of Jesus, preparing for Him in a special way. Students discussed the prophecies of Isaiah and the fulfillment of those prophecies in Jesus, God Incarnate!

As the new year has begun 7th grade has started looking at Jesus' Public Ministry. We will spend a good deal of time learning about Jesus' favorite teaching tool, parables. Students will learn the symbolism in Jesus' parables so they may decipher the lessons Jesus was teaching. They are just as timely now as they were more than 2000 years ago!

Grade 8 is learning about the early history of our church and to that end have been discussing the Schism. They will come to understand what caused the split between the Western and Eastern churches as well as the modern day steps toward reconciliation.

 "Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality.” – St. Paul, Romans 12:9-13

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
