***7th Grade Religion***
This week, we will be discussing the four Cardinal Virtues and how they form our conscience. The Cardinal Virtues guide us into making good decisions in our every day lives. The students will be completing an assignment in which they will be asked to reflect upon those people in their lives who exemplify the four Cardinal Virtues and how they can demonstrate the use of the four Cardinal Virtues in their own lives. The corrected chapter three tests will be returned and reviewed with the students this week. On Wednesday and Thursday, Ms. Chermak will be visiting the 7th grade religion classes. She will be working with the seventh graders and will be preparing them to host our October all school mass which will be held on Friday, October 18th at 1:00.
***Students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service for this first trimester.

This week, we will be starting chapter 4 in our Church History book. This chapter discusses the evangelization of Christianity throughout Europe. It also highlights the monastic movement and the other ways Christians battled the barbarian invasions in the Roman empire. The corrected chapter 3 tests will be returned to the students on Tuesday.
After studying the history of the Nicene Creed, our 8th grade students will compose their own creed. The students will be expressing their beliefs about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and life thereafter in their creeds.
