Jr High – Grades 6 – 8

The purpose of Religious Education for our 6th thru 8th grade students is to strengthen the solid Catholic foundation they received in the primary grades and begin preparing them for their future Confirmation.

We continue with the use the Faith and Life Series published by Ignatius Press.  In the 6th grade we help the student learn to love the law as Christ did and to cherish and love the Mass as our best prayer to God, and especially to revere and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  Our 7th graders learn to treasure the sacraments as indispensable to a full Christian life of love and truth.  And we help them understand how grace works in our soul, its relation to practicing the virtues we receive, and an appreciation for our gifts of reason and faith.
