Just as the Holy Spirit came to the disciples at Pentecost and helped them change their expectations, it helps us deal with changing expectations and to be more like Jesus. God wants us to receive the Holy Spirit as a guide and helper to live as his children. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. Unit 1, Theme 1: What do they expect me to do now?

They are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. To live as God wants us to, we must develop all the fruits of the Spirit in balance. Belief in the Trinity is the central mystery and the most important to our faith. The Trinity is one each of the three persons is wholly and entirely God and yet each is distinct. The tree persons of the Trinity are one God. Whatever one does, God does. Whenever one is present, God is present. The trinity helps us understand that community requires us to stand in solidarity with others, understanding other people s needs as our own.

It is the job of the Christian community to love, forgive and give comfort. The sacrament of Reconciliation helps us begin again when we have failed. The sacrament of Anointing unites the sick person with Christ. Catholic means universal. The Church is universal because it has a mission to the whole world. The primary mission of the Church is to enable people to share in the love of the Trinity. Although there is diversity among God s people, we are Unit 2, Theme 3: What can I do when my life seems to be falling apart? Unit 3, Theme 1: Why bother with church?

5 Know there are several rites that are recognized and accepted by the Catholic Church Explain the task of the Church Define "rite" and identify different rites of the Church community united by our belief in the Trinity. There are a number of models to help us understand Church and to accept others who operate from a different model. No one model is better than another it takes all these kinds of people to make up the Church. We are all connected with God, with one another in our community, and with the worldwide community, both living and dead. Understand how faithfulness and service are celebrated in Marriage and Holy Orders Define the word apostolic and identify how Christians are emissaries for and servants of Christ Explain how Marriage and Holy Orders are models of faithful service Identify ways people are generous and Build strong relationships through trust, fidelity and generosity Encounter Christ by serving others A rite is a way of expressing faith, which has been coloured by the culture and times of the people.

Living or dead, we are all part of the body of Christ. Our actions and our prayers affect others within our community. Because we believe the saints in heaven are more intimately united with Christ, we request their intercession. When we pray for those who died and ask for their prayers, we strengthen the bonds between the community on earth and the community in heaven. Saints are people who recognize God's love for them and act accordingly, even in times of difficulty. They provide examples of how we can live out our faithfulness to God. We are successful when we develop and share our gifts and talents that God has given us for the benefit of everyone. Unit 4, Theme 1: Does death destroy everything?

It is a deliberate falling short of what we know Jesus would ask us to do. We must recognize our sin before we can repent. Sorrow consists of admitting that we have done wrong, trying to undo the damage, deciding not to do it again, and asking for forgiveness. Unit 5, Theme 2: What s right? What s wrong?

Forgiveness repairs our relationship with God. God also calls us to forgive those who sin against us. Hanging on to anger or seeking revenge damage our relationship with them. If we refuse to forgive, we are being unloving, which is a sin. Sin has a ripple effect our sin affects our relationship with the whole Christian community. Through the words of absolution, the priest reconciles us to God and to the Christian community. Unit 5, Theme 4: Why should I confess my sins to anyone but God?

Because we believe our bodies and souls belong to God, we must respect our bodies and those of others by making healthy lifestyle choices. God created each of us, and we each have different capabilities we all have different designs and options that are needed to fulfill different needs. Our sexuality is an intrinsic part of our being. The way we express ourselves physically should be in harmony with our emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual expression. Sexual love should be total, lifelong and life-giving in the sacrament of Marriage. Unit 6, Theme 1: Who wants this body? Unit 6, Theme 2: What s sex worth?

We are called to care for and pray for those who are suffering, and to show them that we love and value them even though the are suffering. In the gospels, it is those who are suffering that come to recognize God in Jesus. In suffering, we can find God. The more we recognize our inadequacy, the more we can come to know God. All life is a gift from God. We must not allow life to be damaged or destroyed. Nothing that is good ceases to exist. We believe in a new heaven and a new earth where life is transformed, not ended. Unit 6, Theme 3: Can suffering be meaningful? Unit 7, Theme 1: How is my life connected? Outcomes Year 8: Stand by Me (We Are Strong Together: CCCB) 10

In order to become a peacemaker, we must break down barriers and strive to understand others. Learning about other people and cultures nurtures positive relationships among people.

We have a right to share in the world's good, and not to enable everyone to share is stealing from them. The love of God and neighbour is the foundation of just relationships. The golden rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." God does not expect us to save the world ourselves, but even small acts affect the world. Unit 7, Theme 3: Do I live justly? Outcomes Year 8: Stand by Me (We Are Strong Together: CCCB) 11

12 Unit 8: Amen Know the meaning of "Amen" and the significance of saying Amen at the end of the Creed Identify things they are willing to stand up for Understand that what they believe shapes what they do Know the meaning of "inner presence" and understand what it says about the Eucharist Understand the importance of going to Mass Review the Apostles' Creed and explain each line of the prayer Describe how they will live out the beliefs they express in the Creed Recite the Apostles' Creed Identify things that they stand up for and explain where they get the strength to cope Identify reasons for going to Mass and express how the Eucharist gives the faith community the strength to live out what it professes in the Creed Describe what it means to say "the body of Christ" and "Amen" Strive to understand the Creed through prayer, reflection, reading the Bible and attending Sunday Eucharist Commit to living out what they profess in the Creed Commit to strengthening their relationship with God and with their Christian community by attending Mass every Sunday Accept that the bread and wine are transformed into the body and blood of Christ and reverently receive the Eucharist each week Seek to allow Christ to enter them and become one with all other people by caring for and respecting others "Amen" means I believe, or so be it. So say amen is to say I believe, I accept and I trust. When we say amen at the end of a prayer, we are saying that we accept the entire prayer and making it our own. To say so be it means that we will act on our beliefs. To say amen at the end of the Creed means we will live in a way that shows our beliefs. The Mass deepens our faith and nourishes us through scripture, the Eucharist and our participation in the community where Christ is present. In the Eucharist we are given the strength and support that we need to be one with Christ. Jesus is present in the bread and wine we receive at communion. They are changed into the body and blood of Christ, and when we eat them we are nourished spiritually. The Eucharist changes us and makes us closer to God and to others Christ touches all who receive him and becomes one with them. Unit 8, Theme 1: So what difference does belief make? Unit 8, Theme 2: Why go to Mass? Outcomes Year 8: Stand by Me (We Are Strong Together: CCCB) 12

The theme of every Mass is Christ's passion, death and resurrection. Liturgy is how we as a community celebrate our faith. It is the ritual and actions of the people. The common flow to every eucharistic celebration is gathering, listening to the word of God, eating and drinking and sending forth. Unit 8, Theme 3: How shall we celebrate?
