Level I

3-6 year olds
At this age the children have the capacity to receive and enjoy the most essential elements of our faith: the mysteries of the Kingdom of God, the announcement of God’s love given for us in the person of Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Many are deeply affected by the endless love of the Shepherd for his sheep, and begin to fall in love with Jesus the Good Shepherd.

9-12 year olds
The children listen to the Old Testament, following the history of God’s plan for salvation, linking all people together in communion. They begin to ask, “What is the Reign of God, and what is my place in it?” It is a primary question which lays the foundation for a lifetime commitment to God.
