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.
Confirmation for Teens
Our Confirmation program generally will take one year. Teens move through each phase according to their readiness based on attendance, self-evaluations and interviews. The program is designed to help our teens come to a deeper understanding of how the Holy Spirit works in their lives and in the life of the Church, and how they can interact with that Spirit to lead a life that will draw them into a closer relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Fifteen is the minimum age for Confirmation in the Diocese of San Diego.
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Throughout the school year, Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered on Sunday mornings during the 11:00 am Mass. Children who are at least 4 years old through grade 4 may participate. After the opening prayers, adult leaders lead the children to the school building classroom where they hear the Liturgy of the Word proclaimed in a way geared towards their comprehension. Children return to Mass before Communion.
Registration is not required to participate in Children's Liturgy of the Word.
Child Alter Servers and Child Lectors
Children who are in grade 4 through grade 12 are invited to consider being an altar server or child lector. Child lectors are trained and have the opportunity to proclaim the Word of God during the 11:00am Mass. Altar servers can be trained throughout the year as needed and are invited to serve at any of the weekend Masses throughout the year. Please contact Maria Jorge for more information at 619-223-2200.
