Circle of Grace

circlegrace_photo.jpgCircle of Grace is a safe environment program for children and youth that is designed for use both in Catholic schools and in parish religious education programs.  It originated in the Archdiocese of Omaha and is the fruit of collaboration among clergy, principals, teachers, school counselors, directors of religious education, catechists, youth ministers, and mental health professionals.  Sound in content and methodology, the program is designed for Kindergarten through Grade 12.

Circle of Grace’s curriculum is steeped in the truths of the Catholic faith and provides a holistic approach to the safety, well-being, and spiritual formation of children and youth.  It was introduced in the Diocese of Burlington in the 2013-2014 academic and catechetical year and is currently used as the primary safe environment for children and youth in the Diocese.
