Some key ideas to remember for chapter 16 . HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 16 :  

  • assembly
  • Mass is the greatest way to worship God.
  • Jesus rose to new life on Sunday that's why we call it the Lord's Day.
  • The beginning of the Mass unites us as members of the Church.
  • It prepares us to hear God's word and to celebrate the Eucharist.
  • priest vs. deacon roles
  • What are some ways people take parti in the celebration of Mass?
  • Draw a picture of your parish gathering together for the celebration of Mass.

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: Students will learn about living things in habitats.
S.S.: Students will discuss producers and consumers
