Our Church  

We use RCL Benzinger's Blest Are We text books.  Each child receives his or her own book. 

Seventh grade students should demonstrate at the end of this grade Level the following understandings:

  • Jesus is God's and Mary’s son and Jesus has two natures, divine and human, united in the one person of God’s son. Jesus was a man, handled temptation and problems.

  • Jesus is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity and God the Father sent Jesus to bring good news, healing, and freedom.

  • Become aware of the ways Jesus continues to be present for us, through the Eucharist and the other Sacraments. Review the Mass.

  • Know by heart the following prayers:  The Lord's Prayer, The Hail Mary, The Sign of the Cross, The Apostles Creed, The Glory Be, The Rosary, and the adult Prayer of Sorrow.

  • Understand that Jesus was a Jew, and that the roots of Christianity are founded in Judaism.

  • Review the sacraments as sacred rites giving expression to covenant and commitment.  Understand the Seasons of the Church Year.

  • Mary, “from the first instant of her conception (Immaculate Conception), was totally preserved from the stain of original sin, and she remained pure from all personal sin throughout her life.”

  • The mysteries of Christ’s public life are his baptism, temptations, announcement of the Kingdom, miracles, transfiguration, ascent to and entry into Jerusalem. Jesus’ miracles are dramatic signs of God’s power and love. Jesus gave us a new commandment of love.

  • Jesus did really die and rise bodily from the dead and through his death, and resurrection, he conquered death and the devil “who has the power of death.”
