Outcomes of the Communion of Saints Taonga

The Communion of Saints
From: Catholicworldofart.com

In our recent staff meeting (taonga) to prepare for teaching the Communion of Saints strand we looked at church theology and the requirements of the curriculum and agreed on three key concepts of church teaching we want children to develop as they move through the school:
1. Mary is our first and most important saint because of her special relationship with Jesus.
2. The Communion of Saints means all the members of the Church - living now, in purgatory and in heaven.
3. The choices we make on earth affect what happens when we die, we will be judged on our choices.
