The fifth grade class will spend the year going deeper into the "Great Mysteries" in the Credo. The text for this year is the Faith and Life Series for Grade 5: Credo I Believe. Students should be reading the assigned chapter(s) before coming to class each week. See the schedule or weekly class E-mails to find out what chapter needs to be read before the next class. Fifth grade is only offered in the evening this year since there were very few registrations for the afternoon at this grade level.
The fifth grade this year will be learning some important hymns of the Church. For example, they will be learning the Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen) which is the Church's anthem.
A significant emphasis will be on the mysteries of the Rosary and they will end each class by praying a decade of the Rosary. They will all receive Rosary cases, holy cards with the mysteries on them and cards reminding them how to pray the Rosary.
