Little Shepherds offers the opportunity for faith to come alive for our children through prayer and sacraments
Kindergarten is about the spiritual strength that is provided to children at a young and impressionable age. The central focus of Catholic education is learning about Jesus Christ and living in relationship to his teachings. A Catholic presence in one's life establishes a strong foundation for learning and promotes cognitive, social, emotional, and spiritual development of all children. A Catholic learning environment provides a space for the child to become closer to their faith and to God.
Pre-Communion is the preparation to receive The Eucharist, which Catholics believe is truly the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, is the central focus of the Catholic faith, since it is Jesus Himself. Therefore, being able to receive the Eucharist for the first time is called “First Communion” or First Holy Communion.
First Communion is a very special moment in the life of a Catholic. For this reason, there is a period of preparation that must take place before an individual is able to receive their First Communion, and specific requirements accompany the process.
Grades 3-6th continues to have the unique religious educational purpose of presenting a Catholic world view to their students. This is a way of looking at the world through a Catholic Church lens, derived from Catholic Church teachings, Scripture, and Catholic Church traditions. These classes serves as the roadmap for our students as they embark on a journey with God. These classes will provide them with a foundational knowledge and understanding of the faith as witnessed in the teachings and the traditions of the Catholic Church.
Pre-Confirmation is the preparation to officially seal their mission of Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Confirmation is the Sacrament that completes the graces given in Baptism. In Baptism, a person becomes an adopted son or daughter of God because they enter into the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus.
In Confirmation, the gifts and graces of Baptism are confirmed, allowing a person to share more fully in the mission of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. During the Sacrament of Confirmation, the recipients are anointed with holy oil, called chrism, which symbolizes a seal or mark that is placed on a person’s soul, designating them as a Christian.
RICA - Children, Youth & Adults
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process of introducing Catholic beliefs and practices to adults and children who desire to join the Catholic Church or complete their Christian initiation into the Church.
