memorizationMemorization is key to helping kids learn the faith and know their faith.  In a world filled with information, facts and proof’s for everything we need to help students retain the material covered in the religious education classes. 

I am not recommending a strickly Baltimore Catechism style of learning but memorization has a very important place.  Today’s classroom needs to form, inform and transform students.  Each component is essential to the learning and conversion process.
