I will be checking to see if the students know the Act of Contrition beginning the week of 12/16.

We have been discussing preparing for the sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation in chapter 11.  The test is scheduled for Tues. 12/18.


Some key ideas to remember for chapter 11. HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 11: 

  • Sin separates us from God and one another.
  • Act of Contrition is a prayer of sorrow.
  • We receive God's forgiveness in the sacrament of Reconciliation.
  • conscience
  • sacrament of forgiveness???
  • reconciliation means
  • contrition means
  • Be able to retell the story of the the lost sheep.
  • Write words or draw pictures that show people at peace with God, themselves, and others.

The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year.  They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.

In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year  your child will need to know the following prayers. 

  • The Sign of the Cross (with the right hand)
  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Act of Contrition 
Science: The students learn about earth's surface changes.
S.S.: The students will learn about the Spanish coming to America and the pilgrims arriving.
