REMINDER: ALL STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR NOTEBOOKS TO CLASS

Iowa Exams are this week. We will be asking the Holy Spirit to guide us in our test taking each day. 

6th Grade- We will  continue our introduction to the Old Testament and begin learning about the Abrahamic faith tradition. We have begun journaling about the OT charcters. 

7th Grade- We will discuss the Gospel of John and how God is revealed to us. We will also discuss, compare and contrast the synoptic Gospels. We will begin Jesus' teaching methods and ministry, playing special attention to how Jesus challenges the disciples. 

8th Grade- We have began talking about Saints, and how they are role models for us as Confirmandi. On Friday 10/12, we discussed Dorothy Day, and how sin doesnt stop us on our journey of faith, but empowers us to strive to do better in our Church. We will discussed the newly canonized Saints this week, and the great process that is canonization.
