Elementary (Grades 1-5)

Discover! Finding Faith in Life

St. Joseph Community uses the Discover! curriculum by St. Mary's Press. Discover! is a Bible based program in which children dive into Bible stories, connect them with Catholicism, and are called into action to live out the faith every week! Discover! uses the "Catholic Children's Bible" as it's primary "textbook" and supplements with age appropriate worksheets, activities and much more! Each child receives their very own Bible and a fun bag to carry their materials to and from church every week.
