Faith Formation for Children
School of Religion: Saint Agnes Parish offers Faith Formation for children not attending Catholic Schools. We have a wonderful program made possible by the commitment and enthusiasm of some very fine catechists. Our program helps students grow in their faith and spirituality; brings them into the community of faith, its life, worship, symbols, and practices; and passes on a shared set of Catholic values.
Registration is required for Faith Formation sessions and registration packets are available online.
First Holy Communion
At St. Agnes, the 2nd grade religious education classes include preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. If you have an older child seeking First Communion or a child over 7 years of age who is not baptized, please contact Katie Treadwell, Director of Religious Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 619-223-9748 to discuss a sacramental preparation approach tailored to your child.
The Jr. Gathering will meet every 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month during the school year at the St. Agnes Teen Center. All 7th and 8th graders are welcomed. Our meetings are a lot of fun filled with games and mixers. Come make new friends and grow in your faith while doing so. Friends are welcomed and we encourage you to come with one. Get ready for a year of fun with special events like Laser Tag, Rockin Jump, Family Fun Center, Retreats and more. For more information email Karagagnon2017@gmail.com.
High School Youth Group
Our ministry, “The Gathering” is sponsored in Point Loma by St. Agnes and St. Charles Borromeo parishes. Since 1985 “The Gathering” has been running faith based meetings in opened to any teen regardless of denomination. All are welcomed.
The name "The Gathering" comes from Acts 2:1 "On the day of Pentecost it found them GATHERED in one place". That verse became the cornerstone of the ministry. Gathering teens into one place and filled with the Holy Spirit.
Our High School ministry meets on Tuesday evenings during the school year from 7:00pm-8:30pm at St. Charles Borromeo in the "Window Room" in the back of the church. For more information email Bob@Gatheringministry.com or go to www.SaintCharlesPL.com and click on the High School Ministries Page.
