Third Grade-January 20th Class

This week we covered chapter 9, The Church Teaches Us.  In this chapter the children learned that the Church is the Body of Christ and as baptized members of our faith, they are part of it.  We discussed the Apostles' Creed and what we are saying we believe when we say this prayer.  The class learned that the Church is guided by the Holy Spirit who guides the pope and the bishops who teach the truth about Jesus Christ through their words, writings, and actions.  We also discussed some of the Church's teaching that is known as Catholic social teaching.  The children learned about human rights and how we should treat everyone fairly and with respect.

Our key words for this week are Apostles' Creed and justice.  Students are responsible for learning the Apostles' Creed.  A copy of this prayer was sent home in October.

This week's decade of the rosary was the fifth luminous mystery, the institution of the Eucharist.  

This week's homework is the Project Disciple portion of the chapter found on pages 88 and 89.  Students do not have to do the Celebrate section.

I hope you all have a great week.  See you next Thursday!
