7th Grade

The 7th grade student group will be exclusively exploring the topic of the Bible. Why you may ask? Well, the Biblical story is our story!

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that “In Sacred Scripture, the Church constantly finds her nourishment and her strength, for she welcomes it not as a human word, "but as what it really is, the word of God"."In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven comes lovingly to meet his children, and talks with them.”(CCC 104)

We are invited to encounter our God in the biblical text and to go deeper into our story of salvation, as it is laid out in the Bible. The Bible is the Lord’s love letter to us and we are very excited to learn just how deep and how wide His love is for us through the 7th grade Bible program.

Please be advised that each month the students will be given homework based on the class topic. Children who may miss a class, will also be required to complete homework for that class.

7th grade students are also required to take part in two service projects. Service reminds us of our connection to those members of our human family who are most in need. The experiences we have during service help us to see the face of Christ present in those we serve.

Finally, Jesus, in the Gospel of Matthew teaches us: “It shall not be this way among you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be your just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

We look forward to search and encounter the love and compassion of our Lord in the the gift that is the Bible.
