Catholicity & Discipleship

The ACRE (Assessment of Catechesis Religious Education) test is an assessment of religious education, proficiency, and practices given by the Owensboro Catholic Schools to students in grades 5, 8, and 11. The four major divisions of the Catechism, Part one: The Profession of Faith, Part Two: The Celebration of the Christian Mystery, Part Three: Life in Christ, and Part Four: Christian Prayer, recall the fourfold division of the Catechism of the Council of Trent (also called the Roman Catechism) promulgated in 1566. This structural arrangement often referred to as the Pillars presents a succession of movements: The Church believing, celebrating, living, and praying.
