Blest Are We Faith in Action invites all learners to explore and grow in Faith, Word, and Action. Building on the legacy of the Blest Are We series, Blest Are We Faith in Action provides some new and different features.

Blest Are We Faith in Action is a thematic program. Grade 1 themes include an introduction to Family – My Family, Holy Family, and Church Family. Redesigned thematic logo in the Teacher Guide clearly depicts the movement of the four chapters in each unit, which correlate to the four pillars of the Catechism: What Catholics Believe, How Catholics Worship, How Catholics Live, and How Catholics Pray. 



  • ”Based on” Scripture is still provided in Grades 1, 2, and 3 to more effectively share the Good News in an age-appropriate manner.
  • Short Scripture quotes for memorization are provided in the Grade 1 Teacher Guide and in Grades 2 and 3 student books.
  • All Scripture passages are in Scripture blue.
  • An oil lamp symbol designates Scripture passages and quotes.
  • Engaging Scripture illustrations by a single artist in each grade level provide continuity for studying Scripture.


Take-Home pages

  • Redesigned first page is colorfully engaging and user-friendly.
  • Images for Saint of the Week have been added in a wide variety of illustration styles.
  •,, and references have been added throughout the book.


Faith in Action

  • New design is colorful, engaging, and emphasizes the Faith in Action feature in this series.
  • More emphasis is given, especially in the Teacher Guide, for a greater connection with specific principles of Catholic Social Teaching.


Feasts and Seasons
Ordinary Time section (and lesson or lessons) is now at the beginning of the Feasts and Seasons section.


Celebrating Catholic Schools Week

  • New design is more appealing and colorful for the digital learner.
  • Lessons are now front and back rather than in a spread format, allowing for easier access to take home.
  • Catholic Schools Week prayer, tying in with grade-specific lessons, has been moved to the website, allowing for a more substantive and liturgically-based ritual prayer.
