Seventh grader Amber Kelley of St. Joseph School in Redding wants to be more than “just nice” to her fellow students, family and friends. “I’m striving to become a better person and closer to God, and to understand how someone who follows God lives out goodness each day,” she says.
For Amber and several thousand other students in the 36 elementary schools in the Diocese of Sacramento, “Disciple of Christ -- Education in Virtue,” an interactive program and curriculum structured on the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas regarding the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit, might just be the ticket. The much-used and highly successful program from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, is being implemented in all schools over the next two years.
