The use of story in communicating religious understanding and tradition is as old as religion itself. Human beings have always resorted to the language of story (image, symbol, metaphor, narrative) to speak of their encounters with Mystery. Telling stories is so much a part of what we do as human beings that we often take it for granted. Thus, the turn to story in religious education is nothing new, rather, it stems from a growing recognition and appreciation of the centrality of narratives to growth in personal and communal faith. How can different forms of stories be used to facilitate the growth in the life of faith among Catholic elementary and high school students in the Philippines? This is the question this extended essay seeks to address.
