We use Our Sunday Visitor - Alive In Christ text books. Each child receives his or
her own book. The third grade class also uses the First Communion book
also from Our Sunday Visitor.
Third grade students should demonstrate at the end of this grade level
the following understandings:
there are different ministries in the Church: Eucharistic ministers,
lectors, ministers of hospitality, altar servers.
the meaning of the different areas and objects used at Mass such as the
altar, tabernacle, crucifix, chalice, paten, vestments, baptismal font,
stations of the cross, reconciliation room and that a genuflection
before the Blessed Sacrament as a prayer of reverence.
