Religious Ed - Family Education - Course: All Souls Day

All Souls Day
Family Education - 1 Lesson

Objective: Students will learn about the history and purpose of All Souls Day. 

All Souls Day is a holy day set aside for honoring the dead. The day is primarily celebrated in the Catholic Church, but it is also celebrated in the Eastern Orthodox Church and a few other denominations of Christianity. The Anglican church is the largest protestant church to celebrate the holy day. Most protestant denominations do not recognize the holiday and disagree with the theology behind it.

According to Catholic belief, the soul of a person who dies can go to one of three places. The first is heaven, where a person who dies in a state of perfect grace and communion with God goes. The second is hell, where those who die in a state of mortal sin are naturally condemned by their choice. The intermediate option is purgatory, which is thought to be where most people, free of mortal sin, but still in a state of lesser (venial) sin, must go.

GOD GAVE YOU THE POWER TO LEARN ANYTHING

Each class is segmented into short, easy-to-understand lessons tailored for each grade level. Each lesson comes with a video, a complete lesson plan, a study guide and an assessment. Objectives and expected learning outcomes are also included. Teachers are invited to use these lessons as a supplement to their existing curriculum, or as a centerpiece. All lessons are built using magisterial content including the New Jerusalem Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2nd ed), and other orthodox Catholic sources.

Catholic Online School takes learning out of the classroom and puts the control right into the hands of the student.  It is a self-paced learning system that gently guides any student through the learning process.  With the lack of quality education that many countries are suffering from at the moment, Catholic Online School truly could not have come about at a better time.
