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. (NOTE: Participation in Grade 1 is a pre-requisite to preparing for and receiving the sacraments in Grade 2.) Please come visit this prepared room in the fall. 
If you have any questions please call Iris Winiarski at 517-223-8684 ext 309 or email [email protected]
