Religious Education:  Curriculum & Program Overview

 

Go Seek Find – Discover God’s Treasures:   Welcome:  We at Saint Mary’s Press are excited to join you in the important ministry of preparing children for the celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

Through this new and unique program, children are led on an adventure of discovery as they explore the rich and beautiful significance of these sacraments in their lives.  Go Seek Find will engage and inspire children, creating a spirit of excitement and joy around their journey toward encountering Jesus through the treasures that are the sacraments.

This program was developed with the real needs of children at its center.  The core text of this program is the Saint Mary’s Press Catholic Children’s Bible.  By using a Bible designed specifically for them and engaging with the Featured Stories within it, children will explore the sacraments through the biblical lens of Jesus’ life and works and learn more about their faith in language they can understand.  They will also experience interactive core activities that bring the chapter lessons to life in a fun and memorable way.  And they will learn important information about the sacraments and reinforce this new knowledge through a variety of activities and family learning opportunities offered in the activity booklets that accompany each lesson.

Go Seek Find will help children discover the incredible treasures that are the sacraments.  May an ever-expanding awareness of Christ’s presence in our lives be the source of faith, hope, and love for all of us!

Ask, and you will receive, seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you”   (Matthew 7:7)
