Year 4—The Mission of the Church / The Early Christians
“Through the Church Christ fulfils and reveals God’s plan to unite all things in him. Christ gave his Church a structure in calling and choosing twelve apostles. With them and their successors he shares his mission, his power and authority. In the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost the Church was revealed and its mission to the nations was begun… The ultimate purpose of this mission is to share in the communion of life and love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” Religious Education Curriculum Directory
Year 4 will learn that Peter was chosen by Jesus to play a special role in the Church and that Jesus gave his followers a mission – to spread the Good News to others. They will learn that Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to help his followers and that Pentecost was the beginning of the Church. They will learn about the missions of Peter and Paul and about Stephen the first martyr of the Christian faith.
You could help your children by:
• discussing with them the life of St Peter and that he was the first Pope
• reading the missionary journeys of St Paul in Acts of the Apostles (Ch 16 ff)
The class teacher is Miss Knight.
