Happy New Year to the 7th and 8th grade students and their families. I hope that 2022 is off to a good start for you all and I’m excited to welcome the students back to class.

In Grade 7 religion we will be looking at the New Testament. We will begin by talking about divine revelation and talking about how God reveals Himself in scripture and Tradition. We will then look at the distinct roles of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Blessed Trinity. Then, we will look at how the Gospels relate the human life of Jesus.
A tip to help your student: read the gospels or talk about your favorite stories from them.
In grade 8, we will begin to look at the Early Church, including Peter and Paul. We will then discuss how the Church was largely in secret because of Roman persecution. We will end the unit talking about Constantine, the legalization of Christianity, and the spread of monasticism.
Tip to help your student: Talk about how we can share our faith in the public, as this was something the early Christians could not too. We should not take it for granted!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! I’m looking forward to seeing all the students in grades 7 and 8. Please put on your calendar the Parent Meeting scheduled for August 24 at 7 PM.
I am a husband and father with three boys. I enjoy spending time outside, reading, grilling and cooking (but I don't bake), singing, and cheering on the Nebraska Cornhusker Football team.
