Level II For ages 6 to 9. Children must have completed at least one year in Level I and display readiness for Level II in order to enroll in Level II. Most children begin Level II in first grade. The child's work in the Level II program is "Mass Centered". It focuses on the relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd which finds its most concrete and intense moment of life in the Eucharist. The experiences in the program serve as an invitation to and preparation for the liturgical life the children will share with adults in the church. Generally speaking, children celebrate the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion during the second year of Level II Good Shepherd. First Communicants will undergo a discernment process as part of their Sacramental Preparation.
