FOUNDATIONS IS THE 6TH GRADE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM AT ST. FRANCES CABRINI, WHICH INTRODUCES STUDENTS TO A “BIG PICTURE” APPROACH TO BIBLE HISTORY, AS WELL AS DRAWS THEM DEEPER INTO THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF CATHOLIC TEACHING AND TRADITION.  USING THE PROGRAM ENCOUNTER: EXPERIENCING GOD IN THE EVERYDAY*, STUDENTS WILL JOURNEY THROUGH BOTH THE OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENT, IN A NARRATIVE OR “STORY-TYPE” FORMAT.  THIS NARRATIVE STYLE WILL ALLOW FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF SACRED SCRIPTURE AND ITS RELEVANCE TO A 6TH GRADERS LIFE.  STUDENTS WILL ALSO ENTER INTO A DEEPER STUDY OF THE ROSARY MYSTERIES, PARABLES, LIVES OF THE SAINTS, ADORATION, AND OTHER FOUNDATIONAL CATHOLIC TEACHINGS.  THROUGH LIVELY DISCUSSIONS/PRESENTATIONS,  PRAYERFUL REFLECTION AND RELEVANT SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS, STUDENTS WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO FORM CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THEIR CURRENT KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR CATHOLIC FAITH AND GOD’S PLAN FOR ALL HIS PEOPLE.
