We started chapter 8 today.  The test will be tomorrow, 10/31.

Some key ideas to remember for chapter 8 :HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 8:

  • Bible
  • New Testament vs. Old Testament
  • gospel
  • Why is gospel a good name for the four books of the New Testament?
  • Be able to draw a picture of what you might do to show someone that you have listened to Jesus' teachings.

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
