Religious Education Yearly Curriculum

Reaching out to our youth and leading them closer to Christ.


CCD YEARLY CURRICULUM FOR ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOL

In grades K-5th grade we use the Blest Are We series by RCL Benzinger. Each grade focuses on a particular Catholic theme.

Grade level themes relate to the typical experiences and questions of students at the particular grade level. In grades 6th,  7th and  8th we use The EDGE Catholic Middle School Ministry program where we help middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ.  Supplemental books are used for sacramental preparation in both 1st Communion and RCIC.

At each grade level previously introduced material is reviewed. Basic prayer, Scripture, Mary and the Saints, feasts and seasons of the Church and the Mass are also covered at each Grade level.
