Catholic Prayers                                                                                                                            This year, in partnership with parents, we have set a goal of encouraging and assisting children to learn their basic Catholic Prayers.  Click on the following links to learn more:

TO MEMORIZE OR NOT TO MEMORIZE     Why children and all of us should learn our basic prayers.     Prayers can be a source of strength, comfort and consolation in difficult times and at the time when a person is near death… especially when loved ones are gathered by their side and they hear their loved ones praying these prayers.

BE MY DISCIPLES                                                                                                                               In the Fall of 2012, we began using the newly published BE MY DISCIPLES Program Grades 1-6.  Learn more @  http://www.bemydisciples.com/

On the Catechists/Teachers web page, click on the “Content Charts and Correlation”  link and then the “Scope & Sequence” link.  This will give you detailed information about every lesson from Grade 1 through Grade 6.

At the end of each lesson in the children’s workbook, there is a page WITH MY FAMILY, which includes a quick summary of what your child learned in the lesson;  Sharing God’s Word; We Live as Disciples; and Our Spiritual Journey.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Dan Faloon,              Director of Religious Education @ faloon@usfca.edu or 415-422-2195.
