Mrs. Maura Grochocinski, Junior High Religion

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  We are all looking forward to a successful school year with your child. 

A little about myself: due to the difficulty in pronouncing my last name, I am known to the SJF students and to many of the parents as “Mrs. G.”  I live in Most Holy Redeemer parish and my husband and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters. 

This year will be my 20th year teaching at Saint John Fisher. I have taught different grades and various subjects throughout the years. I have enjoyed teaching religion in the Jr. High for the past ten years, watching our students grow both academically and spiritually.

I'm looking forward to an exciting school year with our Jr. High students and can't wait to see them on their first day of school, Wednesday, August 21st.

***7th Grade Religion***

This week, we will be starting Chapter 4 in Blest Are We.  This chapter discusses the different forms of prayer as well as the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with God, communicating with God through prayer.  This chapter also focuses on the temptations of the Devil that Jesus faced in the desert as well as temptations we have in our every day lives. 

***Students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service for this first trimester.

***8th Grade Religion***

This week, we will be finishing chapter 4 in the Church History book.  This chapter discusses the Christian evangelization of Europe, the monastic movement, and the Schism of 1054, the split between the Eastern and Western Church.
