The Sacraments are privileged moments of God's grace in the Christian community. Celebrating Sacraments is designed to help tenth-graders cultivate awareness of the Sacraments in order to grow in their love of life and their faith in God. This third edition of the text includes revisions that give teens a greater understanding of the Seven Sacraments as extensions of Christ's ministry to the world. The one-semester course also helps students participate in the Sacraments with an appreciation of the rituals. The teaching manual is an integral component of the course, and was designed to fully support the full-color student text.

By Malia Livingston, high school teacher, Saint Francis School, Honolulu, Hawaii

Your high school book Celebrating Sacraments is excellent. The content in the text allows me to meaningfully enliven the faith of my students who are Catholic and to accurately inform my students who are not Catholic Christians. Thank you for the thoughtful organization of the teacher's guide—especially the handouts and sample test questions!

By Raymond Riddick, Saint Mary's Ryken High School, Leonardtown, Maryland
