The focus of 6th grade religion is Sacred Scripture with a particular emphasis on the Old Testament. We will explore the oral and written traditions of the Church and the culture of Jesus and His times. The students will be introduced to questions people have asked over the ages. The students will learn to appreciate the contemporary understandings of Scripture and will be given the tools to defend the Catholic faith.
Reoccurring themes throughout the year will include: 7 sacraments, discipleship, social justice, human dignity, service, community, and the Sacred Scriptures. Most importantly, we will center our class around the Eucharist, as the Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life and a sign of the reign of God.
