The liturgy is the Church's public, communal worship. Liturgy celebrates the love that the Holy Trinity has poured out on the world. David, the second Kind of Israel worshipped God with music, singing, and dancing. This week we learned about Saint Cecilia, the patron Saint of music and musicians.
October 25, 2017: Chapter Four addresses the mystery of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It also defines faith, hope and charity as the Theological Virtues.

Jesus' baptism expresses the triune presence of God in the Seven Sacraments. Complete Chapter 4 Review for a prize!

October 4, 2017: God reveals himself to us through Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and creation. When we care for creation, we assist in God's plan.

Faith is a gift that God gives freely to his People. We begin our journey of faith with the Sacrament of Baptism. Optional Homework for prizes: Page 62 and 72
