Through this curriculum, we can teach our kids that the Gospel gives us the confidence to face any challenge. Just as Jesus overcame death, we can overcome difficulties because He is with us, providing God’s grace. And even when we make mistakes or sin, the Gospel assures us of God’s forgiveness and love.

“This ‘Back to School’ series guides children to deepen their relationship with Jesus, equipping them with virtues and understanding His enduring presence in their daily school life. By embodying and sharing these lessons, children receive the Good News and become active carriers of Jesus’ love and teachings among their peers and community.”
