THEO 60: This is Your Faith
The focus of this course is to help 6th grade students learn to love the moral law as Christ did. They will learn about the Ten Commandments and how to cherish and love the Mass as our best prayer to God (and especially to revere and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament). Students will memorize the various prayers and names of the items used in the sacred liturgy. Students will become familiar with the Gospel of St. Matthew and make a brief study on The Four Last Things. We will discuss living as a Christian through the Cardinal Virtues and Catholic Social Teaching. The Catechism of the Catholic Church will be used as a supplemental source to drive lessons as well as lectures and discussions.
