Fourth GRADE - PREP online
jesus teaches us how to live
This is a Catechist led, parent managed program. Catechists teach students online, and parents use the tool to reinforce learning in the home. In Fourth Grade PREP students will focus on the moral life, our loving response to God's great gift to us, and our students will explore more deeply what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God.
Things the students will learn in Fourth Grade religious instruction.
Students explore conscience formation, the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, the Golden Rule, and the Great Commandment.
The reality of sin and the necessity of virtue are emphasized.

While it's important for your children to understand the Faith, Spirit of Truth is designed to help them internalize the Faith and apply it to their own lives, providing ample opportunity for them to reflect on how everything they are learning applies to their own lived experience.
