Made in His Image
This year's Safe Environment program is called Made in His Image. The objectives of this program are outlined below.
MADE IN HIS IMAGE lessons begin with prayer which is followed by a catechetical lesson that seeks to instill in the students a greater sense of God’s love for them, and the inviolable dignity that each and every person enjoys since they are made in the image of God. MADE IN HIS IMAGE is, in essence, a catechesis on the Church’s vision of human dignity with very practical implications about the choices that we make.
1. The students will discover the special place that human beings have in creation, and the goodness that God sees in them.
2. The students will recognize that they should be treated with love and respect because they are made in the very image of God.
3. The students will come to a deeper understanding of God’s love for them.
4. The students will review some examples of respectful behavior and disrespectful behavior.
For more information, or to opt your child out of participating in this lesson, please call 765-2359.
