Catechesis Level 2 Atrium

In Level II the child is born anew on two fronts: he is able to use his imagination creatively rather than simple re-creatively and he is preoccupied with justice, fairness, right and wrong. With these two developmental leaps in mind, the child spends time exploring the History of the Kingdom of God, its unity and vastness, and see how God has made God’s self known since the beginning of time with several wonderfully visual timelines.  The focus on the relationship with Jesus is still understood with this aged child in the image of the Good Shepherd but we will expand our understanding of who Jesus is and who we are in relationship with him by hearing the Parable of the True Vine among several parables.
