Objective: In this heart-felt course, students will ask for the intercession of all those who have gone before us, marked with the sign of faith. Students will learn how we are joined with these saints, in Jesus, and we are joined with one another, in Jesus.

With the help of their intercession, we will ask the Father to raise up Saints for our own age and to give us the graces we need to continue to grow into the Image and Likeness of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, so that we can grow in holiness of life and lead all men, women and children back to the Father, through the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Students can also explore more resources on Catholic Online (catholic.org), the World's Catholic Library. There are 10 lessons in this powerful course.
