This topic is designed to allow children to explore what Jesus is the bread of likfe means for us.  They will explore what a convenant is and think about what our part it. As part of this unit they will explore the mass, undetstanding the Penitential Act and the Liturgy of the Word, thinking about what happens at the offertory.
