Faith & Life Curriculum Resource
New parish catechist manuals are used with the existing Faith and Life textbooks , activity books and Family Guide. Easily used by experienced or new catechists. Third grade, Our Life with Jesus , skims through the Old Testament and spends more time on Jesus, the commandments, and the founding of the Church. Fourth grade level , Jesus Our Guide , focuses on the Old Testament stories of the patriarchs and the sacraments, with more of an overview of salvation history than other levels. It helps children understand why Jesus came to redeem us.
Fifth graders follow the Creed as they learn more about their faith in the volume titled Credo: I Believe. Sixth grade level, subtitled Following Christ, covers the commandments in depth, the Mass, and last things, all with a focus on living a Christian life.
Faith & Life – Public conversations where faith comes to life
Grade seven, The Life of Grace , again provides an overview of the big picture but with an emphasis on grace and virtue as well as the interplay or reason and faith. Eighth graders learn about the Church's history, structure, and functions; the mystical body; Christian life; sacraments of service; and last things in the volume titled Our Life in the Church.

Much of each lesson is contained within the manual, with the student book used for reading material. The student book material is good enough to stand alone, but there are excellent teaching ideas, expansions on topics, background information, prayers, brief biographies of saints, tidbits on Church history and Catholic tradition, and much more in the teacher's manuals.
Faith and Life Series
The teacher's manuals take three to four pages of text in the student books and turn them into very comprehensive lessons for an entire week. Lessons are cross referenced to Scripture and the Catechism. Suggested hymns from the Adoremus Hymnal correlate with lessons. These manuals are goldmines of information that truly provide a thorough religious education.
Lesson plans are written for four-day presentations and a review. The review will help you narrow down to essentials if you don't have time for all the material each week.
