Curriculum Guide

Catholic Studies 20: Exploring the Joy of a Catholic Identity

The aim of Catholic Studies is for students to understand, value, and engage in their faith so that they may hear an invitation, or deepen their commitment, to live as followers of Jesus Christ.  Throughout all grades, students investigate, apply and reflect on various aspects of these actions which call upon the Church to:

i.          proclaim Jesus Christ

ii.         worship Christ through the sacraments

iii.        form a communion of people

iv.        give witness, and

v.         serve.

The Catholic Studies 20 curriculum focuses in part on the role and importance of Catholic identity.  Students examine what it means to live as a disciple of Christ and how this affects the way that one lives one's life.
