Dear 5th Grade Students and Parents
My name is Jeff Soulliere. I have been teaching Religious Education/CCD to the public school children on Wednesday evenings for 9 years. During the day, I am a Network Design Engineer for manufacturing plants Consolidate Electrical Systems and with Rockwell Automation. My wife and I have been at St Roberts for 4 years and prior to that at St Isadore’s in Columbus NE. We have 5 grown children and 8 grand-kids.
Objectives, Projects and Activities planned for the 7th Grade Religious Ed class:
· Overall growth in the Faith of the Church
o Growing their belief in God, their Soul and how Jesus saves us
o Knowing the words to common prayers, start to understand the meaning and purpose of them
o Effort on learning the 4 pillars of the Catholic Church in the Catechism
o Spend time learning more about the Sacraments of Confirmation, the 7 gifts and 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit
o Understanding the Mass
o Bible stories in both the Old and New Testament will take up the majority of the learning time.
o Circle of Grace and personal safety
o Craft projects like making their own Rosary
o Acts of Faith filled works to help out people in need
o Spending time in Church learning about what things mean
o Games with religious meaning both in the classroom and in the school gym
§ I will occasionally hand out small non-peanut based candies for prizes.
o Holy Spirit Homework where they have to perform a helpful tasks during the week
o Go to an older parishioner home near the school to pray the Rosary
o Go Christmas Caroling to homes near the church
