God is present in every beginning. teaching about creation is important as it concerns the foundations of human and Christian life, making explicit the response of the Christian faith to the basic question (that people of all times have asked themselves): where do i come from? where are we going? what is our origin? where does everything that exists come from and where is it going?
Children will be learning about, celebrating and responding to the many beginnings each day offers and that God is present in every beginning.
Signs and Symbols
For Christians, signs and symbols speak of God’s mysterious presence in the world and in our lives. special symbols are called ‘sacraments’ because they put us in touch in a powerful way with the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus and they point to his continued presence among us today.
Children will be learning about, celebrating and responding to the experience of signs and symbols and the signs and symbols used in Baptism.
God had prepared his people for the coming of his son, the messiah over many hundreds of years. advent is a time of preparation to celebrate Jesus’ first coming on earth. it also reminds people that he will come again at the end of time.
Children will be learning about, celebrating and responding to preparing for special times and Advent (four weeks of preparation) for the celebration of Jesus at Christmas.
