Firstly, if you are interested in enrolling your child in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (children age 3 - 9), it is being offered on a "First-Come, First-Serve" basis, and there are limited spots available. If spots are full, children ages 6 - 9 will be automatically registered for the traditional classroom and you will be notified. There is no traditional classroom available for children ages 3-5.
Secondly, preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is now a two-year program*.Preparation for this sacrament will begin in 10th Grade for non-Catholic high school students and 11th Grade for Catholic high school students. *The official policy is below:For the 2019-2020 year: - If your child is entering 11th grade, they will have the last one-year program.- If your child will be entering 10th grade in a non-Catholic school, they will be starting the new two-year program.- Students enrolled in a Catholic high school will attend a one-year fast-tracked program in 11th grade. - Please note that after this year if your child is attending a non-Catholic high school and you enroll your child for Confirmation prep as an 11th grader without taking part in the 10th grade Confirmation prep, your child will not be confirmed until 12th grade.
Lastly, if your child is entering 12th Grade, they have the opportunity of joining a monthly discipleship group. This small group will learn how to be active disciples while continuing to grow in their Catholic faith.
