In the 5th grade, the children learn that the Church celebrates the presence and actions of Jesus in the Seven Sacraments. The sacraments are symbolic actions that make God's grace present to us.
We learn about the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Love and review the basic prayers, The Apostles Creed and the Acts of Contrition.
Each week we learn about a saint whose feast day is colse to the date.
Throughout the year, we highlight the various seasons of the church year and discuss special Church events.
We make a special visit to the Basilica to become more familiar with the meaning and purpose of some of the special furnishings in God's house.
