This course offers a comprehensive overview of Catholicism to serve as a foundation for other high school religion courses and faith experiences. Topics include the articles of the Nicene Creed, Sacraments, the study of celebration of the liturgical year, human sexuality, the practice of prayer, the customs of the church, the lives of the Saints, and development of spirituality. As young adults, students are led to better understand their membership in and commitment to their parish community and applying their beliefs to contemporary living.
The second level of religious courses encompasses the study and use of Sacred Scriptures. The first semester explores the Hebrew Scriptures with special emphasis on the establishment of the covenant between God and The Chosen People and the development of that covenant through the time of the kings and prophets. The second semester presents an overview of the Christian Scripture. Centering on the person of Jesus as the fulfillment of the covenant begun in the Hebrew Scriptures, students are exposed to the good news of the Gospels and encouraged to develop a personal relationship with Jesus through personal prayer and Christian living.
The Junior year presents a survey of Catholic moral teaching, along with a more in-depth look at some special moral topics, including the fundamental teachings of Social Justice concerns.
The first semester of the Senior course presents a development of the church through its 2000 year history focusing on the People of God who make up the Church. The second semester challenges the students to take an active role in the Church community through the living out of a personal vocation of service to God and the Church.
