The new Junior Cycle Religious Education programme is common level and contains three strands:
1: Expressing Beliefs
2: Exploring Questions
3: Living Our Values
The three strands are underpinned by a set of cross-cutting elements:
1: Enquiry
2: Exploration
3: Reflection and Action 
For non exam classes the two CBAs will still be very worthwhile.
This programme is designed for students of all faiths and of none.
