The entire program, including textbooks and supplies, is funded by your generous donation to the annual collection for the Religious Education Fund. The collection will be taken on Saturday and Sunday, September 25th & 26th at all Masses. Books are provided for your child(ren) to use during the school year. We kindly ask you to cover the books to prevent damage and at the end of the year return them, in order, for us to use them the following year. Any questions should be directed to Allen Taylor.

Sacraments:

The Church teaches that Parents are the first instructors to their child. Our Parish Program is here to help you achieve that obligation. It is a very significant privilege that God has honored you and the Church with. It is important for your child to attend PSR classes from Kindergarten through the Eleventh Grade. I recommend and encourage not skipping any class years. We are here to support you in nurturing the Catholic Faith. If your child is attending an approved (by the Baton Rouge Diocese) Catholic Elementary or High School then in order to receive the Sacraments your child must be attending a two-year prep course for that particular Sacrament.

First Confession Retreat: Saturday April 30, 2022
First Holy Communion Rehearsal: date to be announced
First Holy Communion Mass: Sunday May 8, 2022

There will not be a Confirmation class at St. Agnes in 2022.

Circle of Grace:

The curriculum will be taught at St. Agnes Parish School of Religion on March 22, 2022. Visit https://diobr.org/circle-of-grace  to learn more about Circle of Grace.
