We use Our Sunday Visitor - Alive In Christ text books.  Each child receives his or her own book. 

Fifth grade students should demonstrate at the end of this grade level the following understandings:

  • The Sacraments, through both Word and symbol, bring God into our lives and bring us into God's life.

  • Grace is God's life in us.

  • Sacramentals are a blessing, an action or an object that remind us of Christ's presence and love, e.g. holy water, oil, incense, blessed palm, medals, statues.

  • Learn that the Bible is a story of God and His people as they begin to learn to use it.

  • Review the Ten Commandments, two great commandments, spiritual and corporal works of mercy as guides to daily life.

  • Review prayers: Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Act of Contrition and Apostles Creed.

  • The Beatitudes are a guide to the values of Godís kingdom.
