REFLECTION PAPER HINTS & GUIDELINES

Purpose of Reflection Paper

The purpose of the reflection paper is to demonstrate what you have learned about God’s “plan of sheer goodness” from your comprehensive study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church while showing your understanding of living the Catholic faith as a journey from Blessing to Blessing. Drawing from the Catechism and lectures your writing should include the three following elements.

1. If someone asked you what the Catechism of the Catholic Church was, what would your answer be?

2. What is the relationship of the four pillars to the overall theme of the Catechism of the Catholic Church?

3. Has this course changed your life? And, where do you go from here?

It is not necessary to organize your paper into three sections. You can write in the style that you are comfortable with, just remember to include the three elements somewhere in the paper.

Paper must be handed in by April 29, 2013. It cannot be sent via email. It must be turned in to your Class Coordinator by or on April 29, 2013. Papers turned in after May 6 will not be accepted and you will not receive a certificate at graduation.

Please turn paper in with a self addressed stamp envelop.
