Prayers and Practices of Our Faith

Linked below is a list of Catholic prayers & practices that should be memorized by each child in the Grade 1-6 program. You will note that a new prayer is added each year (with the exception of Grade 2 – two new prayers have been added), and each year builds on the prior year. ALL of these prayers and practices of our faith can be found in your child's textbook (grades 1-4) or in the What the Church Believes and Teaches handbook (grades 5 & 6 & Grade 4 Home Study students).
