Week 1 (Sessions from Oct. 11-14)
ELEMENTARY You Are Blessed!
Our greatest blessing is the gift of life. These lessons explore the many blessings God has given us: our family, our church, the sacraments and the beautiful world we call home!
ELEMENTARY LIVE IT: Lunch-To-Go Instructions
EDGE To The Heights
We begin our journey, and start to learn about Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. Using one of his passions – moutain climbing – we will explore the blessing of our Catholic Mass culminating in the “summit” of our faith: the Eucharist.
SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION Blessed Lesson 1
We open our time of preparation for First Reconciliaiton by looking closely at all the seven sacraments. Don’t forget to Journal with Jesus in your Blessed Book!
RCIT Why Am I Here?
There are many questions that burn in the hearts of all those who deeply desire fulfillment for their lives. In this opening segment of “Chosen,” the question becomes personal: What are you looking for? Parents you will need to sign in via the email sent to you from Ascension Press.
Week 2 (Sessions from Oct. 18-21)
ELEMENTARY Be The Best Version of YOU (Part 1)!
God gave us the gift of free will. This week we will explore the choices we make, and the help that God has given us to make the right choices: our church family, the Commandments, the Holy Spirit in the sacraments and Jesus in the Eucharist.
Any good journey begins with knowing the physical terrain, and that’s where we begin. The beauty of our Catholic faith is the universality of it – that we can walk into any Catholic church in the world and know there are certain things we will always find that make us feel at home.
SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION Blessed Session 2
God wants us to be a good decision maker. We will explore the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments, and then hear about when Jesus gave us the Great Commandment.
SACRAMENTAL PREP The Ten Commandments and What They Mean
RCIT What Makes Me Happy?
What makes you happy? In the previous sessions, the conclusion was established that everyone really wants happiness. So in this session, you are asked what will really bring you true happiness.
Week 3 (Sessions from Oct. 25-28)
ELEMENTARY Be The Best Version of You (Part 2)
We continue to learn about choices that help us be the best version of ourselves by exploring the saints – we’ll look at their habits of prayer, following the Commandments, living the Beatitudes and being kind and loving.
EDGE The Approach
Determining whether a journey is successful or not depends upon how you approach it, how you prepare – body, mind and spirit. This week, Fr. Peter and Fr. Davis will help us think about our approach and how we prepare for the Mass.
EDGE Priest Video (coming soon!)
SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION Blessed Session 2/Part 2
We continue to look at our choices, and examine these questions: What does it mean to be tempted? What is a sin? What is my conscience? What is grace?
SACRAMENTAL PREP Accident, Sin or Mistake?
Everyone has a story, even God. This session sketches the greatest love story of all time by telling the history of salvation. It is a beautiful depiction of God’s incredible love for you, which tells the truth that you are worth saving and loving into eternity.
