FOCUS: THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES
The theme of the 6th grade is the study of the Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures. The Bible is God's word to us in the words of its human authors. In the Old Testament, God reveals that He has always been present and active in the lives of His people. God has always acted to save His people and to invite them to freedom. Through prophets, like Moses, God spoke against injustice and suffering and offered guidance and direction. The prophets remind God's people of God's faithful love and of the Covenant.
The children also study the Stations of the Cross, review the Commandments and the Beatitudes. The last five minutes of class are often used to pray a decade of the Rosary mentioning special intentions the children may have. It is hoped the children will come to know and love God more and so desire ti serve Him with their whole being and witness to the world.
