2021 First Communion Class Update

Please continue to pray for all the children preparing to receive the gift of First Communion this year. First Communion this year was no exception to COVID-19 changes, rules and regulations. First communicants were asked to pick a Mass of their choosing from May 15th through the month of June. We are pleased to be able to celebrate with the children and their families at several different masses. Please look forward to seeing First Communion photos in our July bulletin.

St. Agnes is happy to offer a faith formation process called Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

This process offers a hands on approach to children learning and building their own relationship with Jesus the Good Shepherd. We have built a special room, called an Atrium. This is a quiet, peaceful place for children to encounter God.  Filled with wonderful works for them to concretely see the mysteries of our faith through scripture, prayer and liturgy.

Each level is a three year process starting at age three and continuing until they are in third grade.(4-6th grade coming soon).  It is important for the younger three year old child to attend class, these early lessons prepare them for the much bigger works to come. 
 
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1
Ages: 3-5 years old 

Grades Pre-School through Kindergarten:
Children are introduced to the basics of our faith such as Mass and the items used for Mass, Baptism, the Holy Bible, Geography through the Parable of Jesus as the Good Shepherd as our main theme. We would invite you to visit an Atrium to get the true sense of our program.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 2   
Ages: 6-9 years old 
Grades 1-3 
Level 2 Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is for grades 1st -3rd.  This is a three year program focusing on the Liturgy of the Eucharist, sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and Eucharist, scripture and geography. This level will aid students in forming a deeper sense of faith through the parable of ‘The Vine’ - how Jesus is united with them and with all people of all time. This level also includes sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Please come visit this prepared room in the fall.

Traditional Religious Education
Ages: 9-12 years old

Grades 4-6
We offer traditional learning style with touches of Good Shepherd hands on work. We learn about Salvation history, Old and New Testament studies and a deeper study of Mass and the liturgies of our church. We learn how we can live in the Kingdom of God in covenant relationship with Christ.
 

First Communicants received a gift of blessed bibles from Father Nate to help them prepare to receive Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time. May we all continue to pray for them during their time of preparation.

The combined 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes reflected on the weight of Jesus dying the cross and His sacrificial love for them, as they created this lovely art project.

During children’s liturgy on Good Friday younger children meditate on the events that took place in the life of Christ during Holy Week. Children laid palms to show their love for Jesus for each event He went through for our salvation.
