This subject introduces students to Catholic beliefs and practices that contribute towards a vision of human life and its meaning. Statements of beliefs, or 'creeds’, that are fundamental to Catholic (and Christian) faith are explored for their meaning and significance. An understanding of religious faith is placed in the context of contemporary societal attitudes. Understanding belief in the presence of the sacred in our world and how this belief is celebrated through ritual, symbol and storytelling is developed. This understanding is then applied to the life of local Church and school communities.
