Welcome back to all students and families!
Each week, I will give a brief overview here of this week’s topics in Religion class. For this week, I wanted to clarify the supply list and offer a quick glance at what we’ll be doing for the year:
8th grade students should have a binder (no tabs/dividers are needed) for taking class notes and keeping handouts, etc. In addition, each one should have a notebook to use as a journal, as well as a Catholic Bible for use at home (it will not be brought to class).
8th graders will study The Church throughout this year’s religion classes. The beginning of the year will cover an overview of “Church” – what it means to be part of the Body of Christ, what the Church does for an individual and for society, what it asks of us. This portion of the course covers topics such as the Precepts of the Church and the need for prayer and service to others. The remainder of the course is a quick and exciting walk through Church history, from the time of Christ to modern times.
Hope to see you all at back to school night!
God bless you all,
