Catechism Class

My catechism class, while using standard curriculum, aims to listen to and help each student and will focus on three main questions.

Who is God?

  1. Creator
  2. Father
  3. Incarnate ‘I Am’

What is the Church?

  1. Body of Christ
  2. Catholic
  3. Bride of Christ

How to be a Disciple?

  1. Faithful
  2. Patient
  3. Kind

The curriculum we’ll be using is ‘The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers”, the first three parts.
