2 Introduction Contents thanks you for the opportunity to correlate Blest Are We Faith in Action edition Pre K through Grades 1 8 with your archdiocesan Core Learning Goals. In preparing this correlation, it became clear that the spiral-thematic approach to catechesis that is central to Blest Are We Faith in Action revealed that concepts required by the guidelines were sometimes presented earlier, sometimes presented later, and often appropriately revisited on many grade levels. To help you understand s correlation of your guidelines with the Blest Are We Faith in Action edition, we would like to point out several unique qualities of the Blest Are We program. The structure of Blest Are We Faith in Action edition is based on presenting a specific doctrinal theme each year and incorporating the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This structure applies to every level of Blest Are We. This spiral-thematic approach enables students, catechists and families to revisit and deepen their understanding of the doctrinal, liturgical and moral concepts and practices of the Catholic faith many times throughout Blest Are We Grades l 8. In addition to the Scripture stories and references found in every chapter of Blest Are We Faith in Action edition, each grade level features an ageappropriate presentation of Sacred Scripture designed to develop biblical literacy. This special catechetical session enables children to have a basic understanding of the Bible that is cultivated through the introductory lesson and activities. A special unit, Feasts & Seasons, provides lessons, activities, and prayerful reflections for teaching the seasons of the liturgical year and select feast days of the Church at every grade level (Grades 1 8) of Blest Are We Faith in Action edition. A special section of each text, Our Catholic Heritage presents an ageappropriate summary of basic Catholic beliefs organized according to the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This minicatechism complements the doctrinal content of the chapters of Blest Are We. The correlation of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten guidelines are based on Stories of God s Love ( 2009 and 2011), s Early Childhood curriculum. Stories of God s Love is the foundation for Blest Are We Faith in Action edition.
