Sacraments of Initiation – New life in Christ
In the Eighth Grade, students should be led to deeper understanding of the following Truths of Faith
unless where noted to be introduced, which will be bolded.
Recognize Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist as Sacraments through which we are initiated

These virtues come from God and lead us back to Him. The theological virtues are the
foundation of the Christian moral life. We also receive the seven supernatural Gifts of
the Holy Spirit, which are wisdom, understanding, right counsel, fortitude, knowledge,
piety, and fear of the Lord. These supernatural gifts are given for personal growth in
