Grade 5, Unit 4, _God Calls Us to His Church, covers the founding of the Church and the first five centuries of the New Testament era. It begins with the work of the Apostles Peter and Paul, and that of St. Philip the Deacon. Next, it moves to the exceptional response to the call of the Church by monks and nuns, illustrated by the life of St. Anthony the Great. It ends with the contributions of three great fathers and teachers of the Church: St. Athanasios the Great, St. Basil the Great, and St. Gregory the Theologian. Guided by the Holy Spirit, the Fathers of the Ecumenical Councils worked through _the big questions and explained the Christian Faith for the generations to come. The overall purpose of this unit is to show the power of the Holy Spirit working in the lives of the apostles, monastics, and fathers in order to establish and maintain the Church, which was founded on Pentecost though the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
