GRADE SEVEN RELIGION
The 7th grade program of the Christ Our Life series is devoted to the study of God's saving love as it is revealed through His Son, Jesus. Jesus the Way, the Truth, and the Life is designed to help young adolescents grow in their knowledge of Jesus, that they may love Him more ardently and serve Him more generously.
First Year Confirmation Preparation
Seventh grade begins the preparation needed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the autumn of freshman year in high school. Eighth grade is the second year of preparation. The students will take their Confirmation exam on April 3, 2017.
Most discussions and work is covered in class as we read through the chapters. The students will highlight specific passages in the book to help them learn the important concepts of each chapter and aid their preparation for tests. The chapters are not followed in numerical order, but rather according to the topics that need to be taught for their Confirmation preparation.
Home work is assigned when a lesson is not completed during class time or it enhances classroom learning. Home study is necessary for test preparation and the important learning needed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
We are concentrating our attention on preparing for the First Year Confirmation exam. The Beatitudes, The Sacraments, Liturgical Year, Holy Days of Obligation, Pillars of the Church have been studied. Concentration now is on The Formula for Confession and sin and Parts of the Mass.
