A one-semester course for 10th-graders to help students see the sacred within the ordinary and appreciate the church's seven sacraments. First it presents the basic elements of sacraments: grace, symbols, rituals and prayers. Then it explains how Jesus is central to understanding the need for sacraments and traces the historical development of each sacrament. Finally it considers each of the sacraments in depth: how they are celebrated, their symbols, rituals and evolution. Paper, 8.5 x 10.5, 319 pages. (©2000)
