Our Sunday Visitor’s Alive in Christ program is designed to help your child learn that God calls each one of us to faith and eternal life with Him as members of the faith community, the Church. The focus is on faith, which is belief and trust in a God who knows us, loves us, and calls us by name. The children will become familiar with the mysteries of faith that we profess in the Apostles’ Creed. Through events from both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible, they will learn of God’s saving love for His people and the truths of our faith. The Commandments are taught as signs of God’s love and the Beatitudes are introduced as Jesus’ way to happiness. The children will be led to a greater appreciation of the sacraments and are encouraged to respond joyfully to God’s call to live in the spirit of His love. The goal is for the children to respond with a trusting, joyful relationship with God and to accept all that God has taught us.
Required prayers: Those from previous years and Morning Offering, Apostles’ Creed, Memorare, Act of Faith, Act of Hope, Act of Love and Rosary.
Our Sunday Visitor religion program includes the study of Catholic doctrine and traditions, scripture, social justice, participation in prayer, liturgical worship experiences, instruction in and reception of the sacraments, and service to others.
