Religious Education Calendar 2017-2018 and Syllabus of 30 hours of formation are required by the Archdiocese of Boston.  We have scheduled 6 - 2 hour in-class sessions and will organize 6 service learning experiences to raise awareness of the needs of others.  In addition to our sessions, we are including the once a month Youth Mass.  In this way, the youth will experience both liturgy and catechesis as part of their formation which will far exceed the required 30 hours.

Catholicism: This middle school subscription includes 22 videos and lesson plans, plus activities and assessments for each video.  Assembled as a virtual tool-kit, each catechist can easily use some or all of the content, which also can be shared in the classroom or via a link for one-to-one learning or at-home use.  Bishop Robert Barron, a trusted source of authentic Church teaching, brings students around the world and deeper into the Faith.  http://www.wordonfire.org/resources/subscription/catholicism-school-enrichment---middle-school-individual-teachercatechist-license/5112/

We are also required to teach a child safety curriculum.  It is Created to Love for Grades 6-8.  http://www.respectlifeeducation.com  Thank you for sharing our faith with your child/ren.
