This year we draw closer to God through the lens of the New Testament.
We will learn to pray in a variety of ways, and we’ll even sing and dance!
Our basic units of study include
The Liturgical Year
Sacraments and sacramentals
Morality and Virtues
Catholic Social Teaching and Works of Mercy
New Testament Saints
The Sorrowful Mysteries
This year, our class time will include Confirmation preparation. Preparation will begin in the New Year, and we hope to celebrate the Confirmation Mass in May. Bridget Bicek will team teach this with me (Mrs. Whetham), and it will be a different style to our regular class time.
Another 7th Grade religion emphasis is learning to be a Missionary Disciple. We team with the Archdiocesan Missionary Discipleship Institute and research ways we can reach out and bring God’s love to those on the margins. We will decide on a class response and then execute it, even from a distance if necessary.
Usually, 7th graders lead the school and parish in praying the Living Rosary in October to honor Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, our patroness. How we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary this year will depend on Covid restrictions in our state in October.
May this year in religion class nourish the gift of faith we have been given.
All classwork will be posted weekly in Google Classroom.
