Our focus this year...The Life of Grace
We will be using two books this year, the Faith and Life book and the Encounter book.
Faith and Life
THEME: Beginning with an understanding of God’s loving gift of the revelation of himself through creation, the prophets, the Incarnation, and the Church, grace is understood as central to our relationship with God. It unites us with him and allows us to share in his eternal life. The lessons place special emphasis on the role of grace in developing the virtues, and especially on the transmission of grace through the seven Sacraments.
AIM: To help seventh-grade students treasure the Sacraments as indispensable elements of a full Christian life of love and truth. To deepen an understanding of grace, how it is given, and its relation to practicing the virtues. To appreciate the gifts of faith and reason.

Encounter Bible Study
God has an amazing plan for you, and it’s written out in the Scriptures. In this Bible study, you will learn about God’s plan for you, for your friends and for your family. Through fun video and discussion sessions, you will learn to see God’s hand in your everyday life at school and at home, and you will never see your Faith the same again.

About Your Instructor...
Mrs. Pufundt: I LOVE to learn and I LOVE to teach. I guess you can say that's two gifts from God :-) I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and nurse! I enjoy skiing, bicycling, being outside and family time with my husband and daughter, Issabella and our two little dogs, Brady and Rosa! I have taught RE for the past 6 years and all 6 grades! I am truly looking forward to getting to know each of you and sharing the joy of our Catholic faith with you!
Each week in class...
We are all called to be saints. So how can we live a spiritual and faithful life daily?...
Sunday: Go to Mass and keep the day for God, family and friends.
Sunday through Saturday: In addition to following the 10 Commandments, we should PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Recall the five types of prayer...
1. Thankful- thank God for all you have (family, friends, school, health).
2. Praise- praise God for Him, Jesus, and Mary.
2. Intercession- Ask for help from the saints in heaven (church triumphant) and the people on earth (church militant).
3. Forgiveness- Ask for God's mercy for your sins that you commit each day, in thoughts, words and actions.
4. Petition- Ask Jesus to help you with a situation, circumstance or problem.
Wednesdays: Go to RE! Meet in church and LISTEN to Father. He will lead us in a short lesson and we will pray one decade of the rosary together. Mom and dad are ALWAYS welcome to stay!
"Extra Credit"- Putting Your Faith Into Action
Jesus said in Mark 12: 29-31, “The first is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Each time you complete an activity, you will be able to take a "treasure" from the treasure box. Remember, one treasure per week, however, you may complete more than one activity per week :-)
