GRADE 3: Fishers of Men—Church & Holy Spirit

They spoke the Word of God with boldness, and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit, the Church grew in numbers. The message is clear: the Holy Spirit is actively involved in the life of the Church and its members.

Each year, our Grade 3 students participate in a Rosary Workshop in which they learn about the rosary and receive one of their own.
