Course name
Life Lessons from Bl. Carlo Acutis
Live course taught by Debbie Gaudino for Summer 2024 Middle School Church History/Doctors of the Church

Blessed Carlo Acutis accomplished so much during his 15 years on earth. In this course you will have the opportunity to meet this young saint, whose devotion to the Eucharist inspired him to develop a comprehensive website on Eucharistic miracles. Together we will learn important lessons from his life, death, and the virtues that have set him upon the path to sainthood in the Catholic Church. Using his own website as our guide, we will also explore several Eucharistic miracles.

In this course, students will be introduced to the life, times, and spirituality of Blessed Carlo Acutis. Through a series of Life Lessons, students will be challenged to apply the virtues and life of Blessed Carlo to their own lives. Each class will also include an examination of a Eucharistic miracle from Blessed Carlo’s own website.
