Seeking to Live the Good News

Seeking to Live the Good News was a series which forms a Years 1 to 6 parish religious education program.

Hard copies of this resource are no longer available.

Each level consists of a catechist book and a student book. The catechist books contain complete lesson outlines, including background information for the catechist, a reflection, Doctrinal references, student focus and teaching points. The student books contain supporting prayers and activities to be completed by the student. Seeking to Live the Good News is designed to help catechists facilitate student learning with the support of the family within the parish. 

Catholics believe the world is where we are called to experience God as Creator, Jesus as Saviour, and the Holy Spirit as guide. The Church engages us in reflecting on, and being open to, the revelation of God in the world, through sacrament word and service. The Church calls catechists to be witnesses to Jesus Christ in their interactions with students and in their preparation of lessons. The Church calls them not only to assist students to grow in faith but also to continue their own faith formation. 

Seeking to Live the Good News contributes to this reflective process by offering a variety of strategies and approaches consistent with current pedagogical practice. The program assists catechists to share and pass on the story of Jesus Christ and to nurture students' growing relationship with Christ. 

Catechists may need to adjust the number and the sequence of lessons according to the Liturgical calendar and the individual requirements of the parish.
