Edge 2nd Semester Curriculumn
Who is God? How did our world come to be? Why do we exist? Why is there evil in the world? What is the point of any of this?
Everything began from nothing. Everything was created by God who has always been and will always be. Our world is vast, intricate, and created by a loving God with a specific purpose and plan. Each and every one of us was created with a specific purpose and plan. God, who is three in one, is our divine designer, the unmoved mover, and, at the same time, our loving Father who desires nothing more than knowing us and being known by us.
Existence dives deep into the very beginning of everything. Starting with wonder and awe of the universe, the youth will be plunged into the depths of the love of God and the great truth that we were created out of the love of God and to love God. This Semester Planning Guide will walk the youth through learning about who God is, the world He has created, and the creation of humanity. They will also tackle the tough reality of the fall of man and original sin as well as the ever timely question of why evil exists. Existence begins a 3 year, 6 semester curriculum that will lead our middle school youth through the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church using activities, lessons, discussions, and prayers relevant to their age and speaking to the challenges they face as young Catholics growing up in our current culture.
