Resources for Parishes and Teachers

For parishes or schools with digital access: if your parish or school is associated with a school board that has purchased the digital resources, your designated Religious Education Consultant will be able to provide you with login credentials for your websites. Click on the button above to sign in to the Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ parish or teacher websites.

For parishes or schools without digital access: if your parish or school is located within a school board that has not purchased digital access, please use the resources below.

Sacramental Content

Information on the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, and Reconciliation is seamlessly incorporated into the entire Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ Religious Education program. In grade 4 and above, the other sacraments are introduced. Although the sacramental content of this program is plentiful and diverse, it only reflects the expectations from the Religious Education Policy Document. It is not intended as a standalone or replacement sacramental preparation program, but rather as a way to facilitate the home-school-parish partnership.

In order to facilitate this partnership, sacramental content charts have been prepared for each grade, identifying exactly where and how content related to the sacraments appears.

Sacramental content charts for later grades will be posted as they become available.

Suggested Week-by-Week Timelines

Choose a grade. Select a week from that grade’s calendar below to access a summary of what is being taught at schools in your parish or school board. Please note that these are suggested week-by-week timelines. Teachers, responsive to the needs of students, may use their professional judgment in adjusting these timelines. The calendars below identify page references to the print content from the program as well as additional multimedia material. Please note that you must have digital access in order to open, play, or listen to the multimedia material mentioned in the calendars. Calendars for later grades will be posted as they become available.
