Theology 9

Description

This course serves two purposes: 1) “to introduce students to the Mystery of Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, and the second Person of the Blessed Trinity. In this course students will understand that Jesus Christ is the ultimate revelation to us from God. In learning about who he is, the students will also learn who he calls them to be”; (Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework for the Development of Catechetical Materials for Young People of High School Age, p.6) and (2) “to help students understand that they can encounter Christ today in a full and real way in and through the sacraments, and especially through the Eucharist. Students will examine each of the Sacraments in detail so as to learn how they may encounter Christ throughout life.” (Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework for the Development of Catechetical Materials for Young People of High School Age, p.20) Corresponds to USCCB Curriculum Framework Core Courses II  (“Who Is Jesus Christ?”) & V (“Sacraments as Privileged Encounters with Jesus Christ”).
